February 2020 – Calder Capital, LLC is pleased to announce the successful sale of Graphics Embossed Images, Inc. (“Graphics Embossed Images”) of Grand Rapids, Michigan, to an Individual Investor.
Graphics Embossed Images boasts over 45 years of experience providing foil stamping, embossing, die-cutting, and folding services to service printers throughout West Michigan and Indiana. The Company has established a strong presence in the printing industry by focusing on being both friendly and dependable to its customer base. The business is built upon a foundation of long-term relationships, which speak to the quality and service provided by each and every employee of Graphics Embossed Images.
Graphics Embossed Images co-owners, Ron Feenstra and Michele Matthews, approached Calder in mid-2019 to begin transitioning into retirement.
Michele Matthews, co-owner of Graphics Embossed Images, commented, “We approached Calder Capital after hearing how they helped a friend of ours transition from his business. After hearing how Calder was able to get multiple offers and close the transaction at a great value, we were confident in working with Max Friar and Calder Capital. Scott Nicholson did a fantastic job helping us evaluate all of our options, and ultimately, we felt good about the buyer and the future of the business.”
Individual buyers, Bob and Bryan, were looking for a business they could make their own when they came across Graphics Embossed Images. As Bryan had considerable experience in the printing industry, Graphics Embossed Images was a great fit for his expertise. Bob and Bryan will look to continue the outstanding service Graphics Embossed Images provides to its customers and will be seamlessly transitioned into managing the business, with support from Michele and Ron. Bob added, “Michele and Ron have built a fantastic business that I respect immensely. We are very thankful to be able to work with them through a transition period. Bryan and I are beyond excited to continue providing the same high-quality products and services they have supplied to customers for over 45 years, and uphold the reputation and legacy they have built.”
Calder Capital represented Graphics Embossed Images as its exclusive Mergers and Acquisitions Advisory firm. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
