Having previously worked with Springboard on both the sale of Heads & All Threads and the acquisition of Flotronic Pumps, I had no hesitation to use them again on this transaction. They are a valued member of my team, always very supportive and provide excellent commercial advice. I look forward to working with them on the next transaction.
