Being Acquired

Owners or representatives of businesses that fit these criteria are encouraged to contact Avante Corp for a confidential discussion on acquisition opportunities.

We promise the strictest confidence and will generally respond to inquiries within one business day. Although we prefer 100% ownership in our companies, we will buy less if vendors wish to continue to participate in the success of their business, particularly if their business falls in the exceptional category.
