Client Testimonial

We engaged TM Capital based on the depth of their industrial distribution and door hardware knowledge, and reputation for quality execution in the middle market.  TM put together top-quality materials and ran a well-organized process that resulted in a great outcome for Speyside on a very complex carveout transaction.  We were very impressed with the senior level attention that TM provided and look forward to working with them again in the future.”
