TESTIMONIALS - TRANSPORTATION

Michael Murphy
President
ZefTek, Inc.

After interviewing several firms to sell our company, it didn’t take long for me to know that we made the right choice. Your firm was relentless in making sure every step was handled correctly and that we fully understood what was required of us as sellers. The end result was clearly a ‘Home Run’ for ZefTek shareholders.

"EdgePoint was an excellent resource to help us navigate the sale process.  They managed an organized and competitive auction, introduced us to qualified investor candidates, negotiated very attractive offers on our behalf, and fully supported us through the diligence and negotiation process.  We are most pleased with their service."

John Strobel
Former President & CEO
Central Warehouse Company

“Selling a business is difficult. It is a complex and daunting task. Often the transaction is complicated by intense emotions. This was especially true for me as the 4th generation owner/operator of Central Warehouse Operations, Inc. I needed a partner in this adventure who would take control, focus solely on my best interest and track the thousands of details capably. I needed absolute confidence, complete trust, top flight financial savvy and more than a little emotional support. "
