Industry: Distribution- Custom Packaging and Promotional Materials

DVS Role: Buy-Side Advisory to Corporate Executive


The Buyer: Robert Drumm


The Seller: Atlas Labels and Packaging is a custom packaging and promotional materials distributor that sells its products to more than 500 craft brewers, wineries, distilleries and specialty food and beverage producers nationwide.


The Close: Mr. Drumm wanted a business with good cash flow located in the Kansas City metro area, ideally with a defensible niche and a growing market. Atlas fit those criteria, and thanks to years of strategic networking by DVS, our partners were able to connect the seller and Mr. Drumm directly. Mr. Drumm’s unique background and experience in the printing industry enabled him to impress the seller as a strong potential successor. DVS then provided guidance through the SBA financing process to complete the deal.
