What Our Clients are Saying
“While the private equity ownership of Midwest Wholesale Hardware had worked with the TM Capital team before, this was my first experience with them. What impressed me was the time they took to dig into and build out our company’s story in a compelling way, and then take our story effectively to the market. They prepared management well for each stage of our interactions and enabled us to focus on running the business. The senior partners were there literally every step of the way, and we enjoyed working with the whole team. In the end, they helped us find the right new partner in High Road Capital: a firm that knew our space and is excited to support us in our future growth plans.”
