Highground has a clear vision of building a group of companies that will allow each company to maintain its regional market brand autonomy, along with the resources to build it for the future off a dynamic, diverse, and well-funded platform.
Friends asked us why we sold our company. Owning a business is something you pour everything you have into, it’s like your child. Something we’re very proud of. We were pursued for several years by many different PE firms, but after meeting with HighGround, we knew they would be the right fit for us. Their culture is the same as our culture. No employees were cut for the sake of profits, rather the opposite has held true. They’ve helped us add to our staff considerably, made investments into our infrastructure, and supported us with new and better systems to enable us to grow. . We couldn’t have picked a better match.
Honestly, I was not looking to sell my business. I’ve had multiple offers over the last 10 years but there was always a catch. A friend of mine sold his plumbing company to the same private equity firm that works with HighGround and his shared experienced got me interested. It was important for me to understand who I would be partnering with and how the deal would be structured. As I did my diligence, everything checked the box. Looking back, everything that was said during the process has proved true. I love working with the HighGround team. Everyone is passionate and driven toward growth and I’m learning new things. It’s energizing to be a part of what we are building.
The experience has been better than I ever could have anticipated. Even with something unforeseen like covid happening right after we sold, it’s been great. The honesty and integrity that Trivest showed throughout the transaction and the HighGround team’s approach and execution post transaction were phenomenal. Our people are growing and thriving. This has been one of the best business decisions I’ve made.
