This new acquisition gives them the ability to expand into additional geographical locations, increase their market diversity, expand their manufacturing capacity, and reduce expenses.” says Michael Sharkey, President of MB Business Capital.

Bob Vedra, Senior Managing Director of IOP, stated, “AAASE needed a flexible capital structure and partner to help support its significant near-term growth. MB Business Capital understood our needs from the outset of the process and remained committed to finding a solution for us.”
