“My father founded Applied Plastics, so when the time came that I was ready to step back and transition to a chairman/ advisor role, my focus was on finding a company with the level of expertise and specialty skill set required for our unique area of business. VSC came in and built out a leadership team with the experience and know-how to make this transition a reality while keeping our team and our culture intact. I can now have complete confidence going forward that my family’s legacy and AP’s valued employees are in good hands.”
“When evaluating the prospective partners, I was hoping to find a buyer who understood my business, could provide strategic insight and wanted to invest in the business for growth. My goal was an still is to make Jet Parts Engineering a leader in its industry. Vance Street not only met those objectives, but also brought so many other resources to the table, which allows me to focus on running the actual business. They have encouraged me to accelerate hiring across the company and support me in my efforts to build out adjacent verticals. They are and will continue to be the collaborative partners I was seeking to grow and transform the company I founded.”
"When the time came to sell A&E Medical, I was hoping to find a buyer who would honor the multi-generational legacy and treat the existing employees with dignity and respect for their contributions to the success of the company. Vance Street Capital had the financial resources to close quickly and then immediately committed substantial additional capital for facility improvements, staff, and acquisition of complementary product lines. Most important to me, the new management team selected by VSC oversaw the ownership transition with emotional intelligence and fairness with regard to the legacy employees."
"I needed a company who could support my vision for growth by offering insight, industry resources and financial security while being hands-off when it came to my business’s day to day operations and capital investment. VSC delivered exactly what they promised. I’ve been able to remain fully in control of my business while having the assurance of stability and growth for its future."
"Vance Street’s long track record of successfully partnering with family owned businesses in the medical component manufacturing space made them the ideal partner for Wytech during its next chapter of growth. Finding a partner that could come in and provide not only growth-based resources, but also one that valued the culture and employee base our family has built over the past several decades was an important decision factor in finding our next partner. Vance Street truly understood and respected those aspects of our business."
"VSC stood out as straightforward, honest people that understood our needs and followed through on what they said they would do. Since the transaction and my retirement, they have continued to improve Measurand, respect its employees, and maintain the company’s values and culture. I am very glad to have chosen Vance Street Capital to fulfil my succession
"I chose to partner with Vance Street for two reasons: the firm’s prior experience and knowledge of this market and their ability to support and build-upon the business I have built. They understand this market and what is needed to continue Excel’s strong growth trajectory."
