Steve Klotz, President of Huizenga Group, commented, “What Tim and the entire team at Churchill have accomplished is very impressive. We’re excited to come alongside them and support the team.”
Churchill Technologies owner and president Tim Walker said the Huizenga Group’s knowledge of industrial automation and proven track record make them a “perfect fit” to buy his Company.
“I believe we have established a solid customer base by providing well-engineered solutions to complex manufacturing problems,” said Walker, who founded the Company in 2003. “The time is right to offer these solutions on a larger scale, and we needed support to make this happen.
“We expect to see our company grow in current and new markets as we embark upon this new opportunity,” Walker added.
Churchill Technologies was assisted in the transaction by NuVescor Group, a West Michigan mergers and acquisitions service company.
“Getting to know our clients is key to understanding what type of buyer to look for, and this was proven out again as we celebrate the next steps Churchill is taking with the Huizenga Group,” said Travis Ernst, NuVescor’s Operations Manager. “Mr. Walker is able to leverage assets and resources he didn’t have available to him before, and it will be exciting to see the impact on the company, the employees and the customers.”
