Who we are

We are a long-term holding company established to acquire local owner-operator businesses and build upon the founder’s legacy.

What we believe in

We believe in being good corporate citizens, doing what is right for all stakeholders, and driving growth through reinvestment in the business and strategic operations.

We see a population that is ready to transition and we wanted to create an exit option for them that reflects their values, leaves their company in good hands, and hopefully helps it grow and thrive through reinvestment in the business and strategic operations.

Noble recognizes the important role small businesses play in the community. If you are ready to hand those small business ropes to someone else, we should talk.
