TM Capital Advises Midwest Wholesale Hardware in its Sale to High Road Capital Partners

TMCapital_250x125TM Capital is pleased to announce that we served as exclusive financial advisor to Midwest Wholesale Hardware, an investment holding of Olympus Partners, in its sale to High Road Capital Partners. Midwest Wholesale Hardware is a premier national wholesale distributor of commercial and institutional door hardware, electronic access controls and security solutions.

TM achieved an exceptional outcome for the sellers by coordinating a highly competitive process that illustrated the Company’s unique ability to serve immediate-need repair and maintenance demand with outstanding inventory depth, high-touch personalized service and value-added technical expertise. The transaction pairs management with the ideal financial partner to capitalize on Midwest’s leadership position to accelerate a multi-faceted growth plan and pursue strategic acquisitions.

  • Midwest Wholesale Hardware, headquartered in Kansas City, is a premier national wholesale distributor of commercial and institutional fire and life safety door hardware, electronic access controls and security solutions
  • With the industry’s largest next-day fulfillment platform, the Company provides expert customer service and offers an extensive inventory for immediate-need applications
  • This is the second transaction completed by TM Capital professionals for a middle market investment holding from Olympus Partners’ portfolio
  • Management and High Road Capital Partners plan to accelerate the Company’s growth by expanding its distribution coverage and pursuing strategic acquisitions

“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.” – Chris Casazza, CEO, Midwest Wholesale Hardware
