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.
CPI listened, understood and responded to our hope that our employees continue in their current positions and have opportunities for advancement. They maintained the flow of quality materials to our customers. And they completed the sale in a timely manner. Working with people who value integrity and demonstrate a high level of professional competence brings value to the sales process.

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.
