Madison Street Capital served as exclusive advisor to Dowco Group of Companies (A Canadian holding company), in the divestiture of its Eugene, Oregon based subsidiary Fabtrol Systems, Inc. FabTrol Systems is a leading supplier of steel fabrication management software. The acquiring company was AVEVA Group plc, a United Kingdom-based public holding company.

“The entire process of selling a company is tedious, traumatic and finally, terrific,” explained Ewen Dobbie, President & CEO of Dowco. “Madison Street Capital located the right buyer, created a workable relationship through due diligence and facilitated communication to ensure both parties ‘stayed on point.’ This helped in an immeasurable way to get through rough spots and we are immensely grateful to Karl D’Cunha and Jay Rodgers.”
