“From the beginning, we were impressed with the personal approach of Solis. The principals were very involved in due diligence, asking us questions directly rather than through associates or intermediaries.

The Solis principals keep their word. They do what they say. If we made mistakes, they helped us make things right. We knew that they were there for us and they never let us down.

Solis supported us through good and challenging times. In addition to supporting internal growth, Solis was instrumental in helping us complete a joint venture with another company that further expanded our product line.

Given the success we have shared, I would partner with Solis again if given the opportunity. I believe in this firm and would recommend them to other CEOs looking for a value-added private equity partner.”
