CONTACT US FOR A CONFIDENTIAL CONSULTATION
We want to learn about your business and goals. After our initial conversation, we will send you an information request regarding what is needed for us to conduct a “market-informed” valuation analysis. This analysis is unique as we carefully assess your business through the eyes of a buyer by pairing manufacturing industry transaction data with our own proprietary transaction data to produce a custom report indicating the valuation range that we believe will be reflected by the market. We will also discuss how to position your business to achieve a premium valuation.
Along with the valuation analysis, we will provide a custom confidential marketing plan detailing exactly the steps that we will take to find buyers and maximize competition. If you decide to move forward with a sale, we will design a confidential information memorandum (CIM) to outline the advantages of your manufacturing company. We will never provide your company’s identity or any confidential information to any buyer unless they have signed a strict confidentiality agreement, answered qualifying interview questions, undergone a background check, and been approved by our team (and/or our client).
Calder will design a sophisticated and comprehensive marketing campaign that confidentially introduces your business to a pool of 1,000s of buyers. Using sophisticated and proprietary communication campaigns, we will narrow the pool of buyers down to the most serious ones, have one-to-one discussions with them, solicit offers, and then sit down with you to review the best offers and advise you on the advantages of each one. When you have chosen the best offer for you, we will suggest ways to negotiate and improve each offer and then roll up our sleeves to make the final offer as perfect as possible. We'll answer questions during due diligence and keep things on track with the attorneys.
At Calder Capital, we offer unparalleled industry and buy-sell expertise that sets us apart from the competition. Whether you're looking to expand your manufacturing portfolio or sell your industrial business, our team of seasoned professionals will guide you every step of the way. We have a comprehensive understanding of the unique challenges and opportunities within the manufacturing sector, enabling us to provide strategic advice and tailored solutions to meet your specific goals.

MANUFACTURING CLIENT TESTIMONIALS
"As the seller's attorney for Diamond Die & Mold Co, I'm thrilled about this sale. It preserves the company's 60-year legacy and secures continued employment for all employees in metro Detroit. The new owner shares a deep appreciation for the company's history and its employees. With a strong foundation in place, exciting growth and expansion opportunities lie ahead. My experience working with Garrett Monroe and Calder Capital was excellent. His deep knowledge of the die and mold industry led to finding the perfect buyer. Garrett's responsiveness and professionalism made the process seamless for the seller. I highly recommend Garrett and his team at Calder Capital to anyone considering selling their business."
– Andy Goldberg, Legal Counsel to Diamond Die & Mold, Clinton Township, MI (Seller's Counsel)
“There were definitely ups and downs along the way, but I sincerely applaud the efforts of Calder and Advisor Shane Kissack. Shane is patient and knowledgeable. He always took the time to answer my questions and I felt he was always on my side. He did an excellent job.”
– Andy Bodnar, Former Owner, Kelm-Acubar, Benton Harbor, MI (Seller)
"After 40 years in business, we decided that it was time to look at exiting the business and planning for retirement. We engaged Calder Capital based on the successful sale of a friend’s business that had also been managed by Calder. We found the right buyer in early August and closed on the sale of the business and the real estate on September 30. Given that the purchase involved SBA financing, it required everyone working together to move the process along as fast as possible. Pankaj Rajadhyaksha did a tremendous job in ensuring communication between the buyer, seller, attorneys, banker, and the title company to help us get to the finish line. Pankaj was thorough, professional, and genuinely interested in our success. I would recommend that any small to mid-sized business owner thinking of an exit from their business consider using Pankaj and Calder Capital."
– Rod Nitz, President, Midwest Die Corp, Baroda, MI (Seller)

"The Calder team was incredibly helpful. Sam brought with him an incredible energy and willingness to answer questions at all hours of the day, and Ghazey has a steady confidence. The process couldn’t have gone more smoothly, and certainly wouldn’t have without them."
— Mark Stevens, Former Owner, C&K Box and Mulch Wholesalers, Jackson, MI (Seller)
"Well, it has been quite the journey getting to this point, many setbacks, frustrations, and hurdles to overcome. In the end, dogged perseverance, determination, and a broker who wouldn’t quit prevailed. Thank you so much for your efforts, time, advice, and even a little humor when things got a little testy. You were a broker, psychologist, strategist all wrapped up in one.
Thanks to you Rick, Max, and Calder Capital. If you ever get to southwest Florida, look us up, we’ll have a drink or few, share some stories, and be able to finally take a deep breath and laugh about the whole process."
— Ed Walerko, Owner, Walerko Tool & Engineering Corp., Elkhart, IN (Seller)

The Calder team got us the top price for our Business while finding the best fit for the continuity of Custom Millwork & Display. They are the best in the business!"
— Dustin Mead, Owner, Custom Millwork & Display, South Bend, IN (Seller)

— Gordon “Butch” Payton, Owner, GP Manufacturing, Inc., Buchanan, MI (Seller)
"Throughout the process of accumulating data, marketing and qualifying potential new owners, throughout due diligence and legal proceedings both Pankaj and Ghazey were always willing to take the time to answer all questions, stay late, work weekends, even to the point of offering substantial advice, consultations and recommendations during legal negotiations with my attorney. At all times I felt truly represented by Calder Capital and these gentlemen. I would heartily endorse Calder Capital and specifically Pankaj and Ghazey if you are considering purchasing or selling your manufacturing business!"
— Bob Playford, Founder, Aquest Machining & Assembly, Inc., Greenville, MI (Seller)
