We are honored to announce that one of our clients, Heritage Windows & Doors, scored one of the state’s biggest business accolades when the Arizona Chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth awarded Heritage “Deal of the Year” on May 21, 2019.

 Heritage Windows and Doors, a DBA of Tashco Industries Inc., was founded in 1979 by Turkish immigrants, Fred and Hal Tashman. The Company is highly regarded throughout their industry, not only for their quality products and leading edge manufacturing processes, but also for the innovations they made within the market through the years, many of which involve designing and creating products intended for warmer, more arid environments. The company was acquired by Andersen Corporation on February 28, 2018.

In his acceptance speech, Hal Tashman said, “This is the story of immigrants and entrepreneurs coming to the United States, so thanks to America for this success and happiness. There were many years of hard work, blood and tears, especially in a cyclical industry”.

Additionally, the brothers said, “We are very pleased to have been able to partner with Andersen Corporation since they are our industry’s leading window manufacturer. It is truly an honor to see Heritage become part of the Andersen family. We were also very pleased with our partnership with CKS Advisors. The CKS Team did an excellent job representing us during the whole process and made it possible for us to experience the joy of exiting our business with honor”.

In addition to the CKS team of Mark Young and Dennis Cornelius, Managing Partners, and David Meyers, Senior Analyst, Heritage was also represented by Brian Burt and Bill Kastin, Partners – Snell and Wilmer, and Rayleen Colletti, CPA, Shareholder – Hunter & Hagan.

We could not be happier for Fred and Hal and wish them good fortune in the years ahead.
