Chinook Capital Advisors represents owners of PNW Manufacturer & Distributor in strategic sale

Chinook Capital Advisors, a leading M&A advisory firm serving the needs of Pacific Northwest business owners, acted as the exclusive advisor to the shareholders of a Pacific Northwest manufacturer & distributor (“the company”) in its acquisition by a family office-owned strategic buyer (“the buyer”).

Located in the Pacific Northwest, the company is the industry leader in the innovative design, procurement, and distribution of healthcare personal protective equipment (“PPE”) solutions. Their PPE dispensing solutions have expanded beyond healthcare in application to other commercial markets and remain at the forefront of innovation across a variety of industries including industrial, education, food service, and retail.

“When we made the decision to sell the family business, we wanted to be represented by a solid and proven M&A firm. Chinook Capital Advisors proved to be the right choice for us from the beginning and through every step of the transaction,” said the former CEO. “All members of the Chinook team were laser-focused on closing the transaction. We are very grateful for their services, and I would recommend them to other family-owned businesses in the Pacific Northwest.”

“We enjoyed working with the company’s ownership team through all stages of the transaction”, added Ed Kirk, co-founder of Chinook. “It was important to the ownership team to find a strategic partner that would continue the nearly 50-year family legacy with a commitment to their customers and distribution partners.”

”As the leading trade brand in their industry, Chinook was able to position significant growth opportunities that could be achieved with the right partner. We found this with the buyer, and it will be exciting to see how the brand continues to grow in years to come.” added John O’Dore, co-founder of Chinook.
