Chinook Capital Advisors represents owners of NorthWest Construction Control Inc. in recapitalization with North Range, LLC

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 NorthWest Construction Control Inc. (“NorthWest”) in its recapitalization with North Range, LLC.

Located in Sumner, Washington, NorthWest provides streamlined field inspection services for banks, credit unions and private capital sources nationwide. Their proprietary cloud-based platform tracks the construction progress for lenders and keeps all information easily accessible in an online portal.

“I cannot thank the Chinook team enough. Each member of the team was critical in getting our sale across the finish line. Most people only sell one business in their lifetime and it was wonderful having Chinook as our advisors to shepherd us through the process. Their organization, wisdom and guidance were critical for our sale. I would highly recommend them to anyone considering selling their business,” said Keith Schlemlein, former President of NorthWest Construction Control.

“The Chinook team was a pleasure to work with. Their team worked hard to find creative solutions, were consistently responsive, but most importantly honest and straightforward,” said Patrick Dunagan, Principal of North Range LLC. “Regardless of which side of the table you are on, an M&A advisor like Chinook provides significant value to the deal-making process.”

“Congrats to Keith and the management team at Northwest, for building the market leading business in their space. The company is in good hands with Patrick at the helm, and we look forward to seeing him succeed in years to come,” said John O’Dore, co-founder of Chinook.

“Patrick is the ideal successor given his unique background in both construction and software and we wish him the best as NorthWest begins its next chapter serving the growing customer base,” added Ed Kirk, co-founder of Chinook.
