  1. “We were looking for the capital to help us with the buyout of Adams but needed to be sure it was someone who understood and supported our growth strategy. All of the groups we talked to had the money, but Valesco quickly showed us that they were exactly the type of partner we wanted. They’re experienced folks that contribute meaningful resources to all areas of our business. It feels like we added a powerful member to our team”
