“We worked with Ted Rieple and the team he has assembled at 1stWEST Mergers and Acquisitions to engage in the sale of our company, BuilderMT. With 1stWEST’s guidance, we completed a highly successful transaction, and today we are a Berkshire Hathaway company, after our acquisition by MiTek Industries.

Our experience with 1stWEST was extraordinary. The professionalism and thoroughness of the 1stWEST team was exemplary. They moved us through the preparation, bid solicitation, due diligence, and sale processes with expert advice that very often required hour-by-hour contact. Ted Rieple added icing on the cake by maximizing the value of our company through his representations to the buyer, and he was masterly at optimizing our earnings and value multiples. We wouldn’t dream of engaging any other M&A firm than 1stWEST. They’re the tops.”

– TOM GEBES, Founder and President, BuilderMT, a Berkshire Hathaway Company

Success is a result of our consistent approach to the process:
