Academy Design & Technology Services acquired by Integrity Trade Services Inc.
Benchmark International is pleased to announce the successful sale of Academy Design & Technology Services (Academy Design) to Integrity Trade Services Inc. (Integrity) in a deal for an undisclosed sum.
Academy Design has been a leading force in The State of Florida as a solutions provider for staffing needs, special projects and effective recruiting for over 30 years. Since 1978, the company has been providing staffing services to private corporations as well as government agencies throughout Florida.
Integrity is a rapidly growing national staffing service provider in the US, with a total of eight offices operating in Illinois, Indiana, Texas and now Florida. In order to increase growth, Integrity has actively sought acquisitions throughout Florida to further its network.
Integrity acknowledged the expertise and presence of Academy Design and both parties worked with Benchmark International in order to complete a successful acquisition.
On completion of the deal, Thomas Sholar, shareholder of Academy Design commented, “I decided to go with Benchmark International over a local option based on their successful track record. They brought us a number of prospects and offers but Integrity offered the best fit for both parties’ needs.
“In addition, the Benchmark International team worked with us throughout the sales process as a partner, to achieve a common goal. Based on my experience with Benchmark International, we would recommend them to other sellers.”
Wade Duncan, Senior Associate of Benchmark International said, “When Academy Design came to market it was clear that the shareholders engaged us based on our ability to move quickly. By applying our proven marketing approach, we were able to engage Integrity within a short period of time after coming to market and ultimately achieved a great result for all parties involved.”
Benchmark International wishes both parties all the best for the future. If you are considering selling your company within this sector, Benchmark International continues to see high demand from buyers and would welcome a discussion with you regarding a potential sale.
