What our clients say

  • “When we began the process, we were aware of the need for a financial advisor with the technical expertise to navigate the intricacies of a transaction and guide us through this complex process. However, as important to us was a team that truly appreciated the importance of a transaction to the Keystone legacy. We found both with the team, who shepherded us through every step of this journey, and are extremely happy with the final outcome.”

    John Andrews, CEO of Keystone, remarked, when Keystone Aniline Corporation and its Keystone Europe Limited subsidiary has been acquired by Milliken & Company
