“This transaction caps an incredibly rewarding journey.  We were fortunate to have Caltius Equity as our partner throughout the process of acquiring Northwest, building it through organic expansion, acquisition, operational enhancements and new product/market development, and then selling it to the most logical buyer. Caltius Equity’s unwavering stewardship, especially the insights and support offered by its Principals, was instrumental to Northwest’s success story.”
