Exclusive financial advisor to A/Z Corporation
KPMG Corporate Finance LLC acted as the exclusive financial advisor to A/Z Corporation.
A/Z Corporation is a highly recognized leader in design, specialty construction, and integrated facilities services. Based in North Stonington, CT, the Company has enjoyed a 50 year operating history under family ownership. The Company is dedicated to serving the region’s most recognized organizations operating in technology-oriented end markets and many of A/Z’s clients rank in the Fortune 500. Given its scale and growth characteristics, A/Z has consistently ranked in the Top 400 Contractors nationwide, by Engineering News Record (ENR). Last year, A/Z generated $245 million in direct revenues and another $50 million of work put in place for owner-held contracts.
