The business sold in 86 days from the time of listing to the time of closing.  The average business sells in 8.6 months. The sale was a result of a structured Transworld process that included several strategic and financial buyers. The sale includes the Texas Diamond Tool brand, a fully equipped 6,900 SF office and warehouse located on 1.7 acres, an established base of over 300 nationwide clients, a proprietary manufacturing process, manufacturing equipment, and a team of well-trained employees. The owners, Bill and Linda Bridwell, have agreed to continue working in the company.

The business attracted an impressive amount of interest from both strategic and financial buyers. Buyers were attracted to Texas Diamond Tools’ strong brand recognition, historic profitability, national clientele, proven manufacturing process, real estate inclusion, impressive employees, and national growth potential.

The new owner is Mr. Xiaoping Hu. Mr. Hu is a successful international businessman who has successfully owned and operated businesses in China and the Middle East.  Mr. Hu came to Transworld Business Advisors shortly after TDT was listed seeking a strategic business purchase to complement and leverage his other thriving companies outside of the U.S.  He looked at several Transworld businesses but immediately recognized the value of Texas Diamond Tools. After an introduction to the sellers by Transworld, he quickly reached a deal to purchase their business.

Unlike many other broker agencies, whose primary focus is on representing the seller, and the seller only. TBAH sets themselves apart from the competition with their strong focus on both their sellers and their buyers. It’s important to the company that both parties are represented ethically and have the most positive and stress-free experience possible.

“We are focused on helping buyers find the right fit for them, assisting in the due diligence process of the sale, and assisting with any financing referrals. Our team of brokers is trained to identify the best type of buyer for each one of our listings, and the best purchase for each one of our buyers” – Elizabeth, Marketing Director at TBAH.

As Mr. Hu’s first purchase with TBAH, President Gerry Brisson was his appointed broker, however, Gerry immediately recognized an opportunity to make Mr. Hu feel more comfortable and assured by utilizing his diverse team of brokers to invite Senior Business Advisor Austin Zou to co-broke on the deal and assist Mr. Hu in any way possible.

Austin Zhou is heavily involved in several Asian organizations in the Houston area including his role as the Chairman of the Asian Chamber of Commerce, Co-founder & President of China-US Pathway and more. He also speaks Chinese, English and basic Japanese. Because of TBAH diverse team and Austin’s networked base of cross-cultural professions, TBAH provided Mr. Hu with a Chinese speaking CPA, Attorney, & Real Estate Agent here in the Houston area to make him feel comfortable and well represented.
