Class VI Partners Represents Sunset Stone, Inc. in its Acquisition by TGP Investments, LLC

Class VI Partners is pleased to announce the acquisition of Sunset Stone, Inc. (the “Company”) by TGP Investments, LLC. “We are incredibly fortunate to have worked with Russ and Christina McCombs throughout this process. As one of the oldest cast stone veneer manufacturers in the U.S., Sunset Stone has a fantastic reputation in the industry due to the focus on high-quality products and uncompromising customer service. We are excited that Russ, Christina, and the Company found a great partner in TGP to continue to build on the Sunset Stone legacy,” said Matthew Petterson, Class VI Senior Associate.

“Sunset Stone was a part of our family for over 40 years and finding the right fit to take our company to the next level was high on our priority list. Class VI understood how important continuing the culture of a family business was to us and helped us find a buyer that shares that vision.

Throughout the process they kept the focus on the goal while guiding us through the challenges of due diligence and helped both parties come to an agreement that was fair and mutually beneficial. I’m confident that the new owners will nurture and grow the business along with the people who have helped us get it to where it is today. Thank you to the entire Class VI team for helping us successfully navigate the sale of our company,” said Russ McCombs, Sunset Stone Owner and President.
