Client Testimonial

“We selected TM Capital as our financial advisor due to their deep experience working with companies across the glass landscape including fabricators, glaziers and float glass suppliers.  TM’s relationships with the leading potential strategic and private equity buyers, hands-on senior level attention and identification of the right partner for the business proved highly valuable in successfully completing the transaction.  We are very excited about our next phase of growth in partnership with Ironbridge.”
