The Company is a leading a leading manufacturer and distributer of holsters and accessories for military and law enforcement customers.
The Company was owned and operated by a founder and his wife. The founder was reaching retirement age and did not have a clear succession plan in place. Trestle worked extensively with the owners to devise a plan that would provide for the continued health of the business and the welfare of their employees.
Trestle spoke to a number of different potential partners, including a private equity firm focused on military and defense companies, other holster and accessories manufacturers and a select list of firearms manufacturers. After one transaction was abandoned due to factors unrelated to the Company, the business was ultimately sold to a single investor with an extensive firearms background who took over day to day operations personally. Most important to the owners, all operations and employees remained in place under the new ownership.
