CPI has a proven track record of successfully buying and integrating companies and is considered a “buyer of choice” among owners seeking to sell. Our senior management team has successfully acquired and integrated approximately 60 companies over the course of their decades-long careers.
Our goal is to retain the local management team of companies we acquire and to keep day-to-day decision making at the local level, while standardizing key business practices and providing strategic leadership and insight from our senior management team.
Prospective sellers can be confident of confidentiality and fairness throughout all stages of the negotiation process, a quick initial evaluation, and fast transaction execution. Our experienced management team understands the importance of continuity in operations and maintaining a strong customer and community focus during the integration process.
With every transaction, we pursue a win-win for our company and the acquired company’s owners and employees.

My first desire for Everett Dykes Grassing was that it continue operating for many years and CPI provided the financial and operational support to make this happen. My second goal for our company was that we achieve our potential in middle Georgia by expanding via greenfield or acquisition and with CPI’s support we can meet this goal.
Van Dykes, former owner of Everett Dykes Grassing Co., Inc.

King Asphalt has worked extremely hard to build a legacy of quality and excellence over the last 49 years. Continuing the King reputation and the continuity of our team were the most important topics when talking with CPI. Its leadership team listened to our concerns and worked extremely hard to make the process as smooth and timely as possible. Joining CPI provided endless opportunities for the advancement of our employees while providing support for future growth throughout South Carolina.
Mike Crenshaw, former co-owner and current President of King Asphalt, Inc.
Why would a family owned business of 61 years agree to sell to CPI? We knew the company and the people. We knew they would continue our tradition of quality, excellence, safety and high integrity. We also knew they would take care of our people who had been loyal and faithful to us for so many years. They exceeded our expectations.
