Who We Are:
Helio Next is a private holding company that is focused on acquiring & operating scalable businesses. We are mostly industry agnostic when considering potential opportunities, but our current focus is on organizations with sustainable, long-term operations in the following categories: industrial manufacturing, equipment manufacturing, coatings & specialty chemical manufacturing, industrial services, coatings services, aftermarket automotive, and niche e-commerce. We look to leverage our wide range of relevant industry relationships and a growing network of internal resources to strengthen our businesses and enhance value.
The team at Helio Next has experience with large organizations but most commonly works in the small to mid-sized business world, so we understand the unique challenges of transitioning and successfully running businesses of all sizes. With our shared services model, we provide our business group with advanced resources and capabilities that would often be challenging or out-of-reach for small to mid-sized businesses. Our dedicated in-house team provides a foundation for each of our companies in the areas of management, accounting, human resources, marketing/design, advertising, etc.

We believe that a strong community is one of the foundational elements for a successful business. For that reason, Helio Next is headquartered in the heart of the United States – Salina, Kansas.
We headquarter out of a historic building near the vibrant downtown district and we are proud to be a part of the Salina community. Salina provides a comfortable lifestyle, a strong entrepreneurial spirit, & a growing industrial community which allows for many valuable relationships & partners.
As with most things, the people are what make something truly great, and we have no shortage of great people in Salina.
In addition to our headquarters location, Helio Next owns and operates facilities in the Midwest totaling well over 150,000 sq. ft. This real estate provides us with flexibility as we evaluate new opportunities, especially deals that are candidates for relocation.
What We Are Looking For:
We strive to be good stewards of the companies we acquire and are looking for enduring businesses, primarily in the Central States or Greater Midwest, that can fit in well with our group and align with our values of integrity, humility, transparency, respect, and expertise.
A few of the basic foundations that we seek to identify for new acquisitions are: sustainable operations (10+ years in business), strong growth opportunities within the market of operation, a decentralized customer base, consistent profits with healthy margins, and a strong existing management team or ability to be relocated/consolidated.
In general, we are looking for businesses with consistent earnings that exceed $500k, but we regularly consider smaller deals, especially if the business can be relocated or consolidated with any of our existing operations.
“We had never had any dealings with HNH prior to selling our business and have found them to be most forthright and most professional but also a most down to earth group to correspond with and work with.”
“As in every business acquisition, the seller and buyer have different objectives that often clash, causing delays and ill will. When competing objectives arose, HNH was willing to work out mutually beneficial resolutions in a timely and balanced fashion. They were also intently considerate of the employees that transferred with the business and made sure that HNH was fair and open with them.”
“Throughout my dealings with HNH, they have proven to be a fiscally responsible business owner of sound character. They have never missed on any obligation as part of our agreements. Due to my experiences with HNH, I feel confident issuing this statement as a validation of their integrity & professionalism.”
