Sale of a Third Generation Architectural Embellishment Company
This company got its start at the Columbian Exhibition in Chicago in 1883 and had a rich history of providing artisan architectural embellishments made of plaster and other proprietary materials. The challenge was to find a buyer that appreciated the fact that the employee base had unique skills that would be hard to replicate in another location. We found an interested buyer who kept the plant in its present location and continued to employ all of the employees, including one of the owners who stayed on board. The company continues to operate successfully today.
Sale of a Well Established Flooring Store
This flooring store was created when two high school friends that were in the business decided that there was a better way to sell flooring and joined forces to start this company in 1992. Fast forward to today and the company has a successful warehouse/showroom with a home grown sales force. We found a buyer who appreciated what they had created and kept the employees, promoting two of them to manage the store after the exit of the owners. And, since the former owners still own the building, they have a good stream of retirement income from the lease of the building to the new buyer.
You kept me informed of all actions… and worked diligently with me on this effort.
“John and his partners took on our 135-year-old one of a kind company as a challenge and thoroughly achieved our goal of selling to an individual that will carry on a family tradition. We could not have been happier with their thoughtfulness in regard to our concerns, and John was easy to work with in understanding our needs.’’
