Benchmark Intl Facilitated The Trans Btwn Dover Foods, Inc. & Transylvania Vocational Services, Inc
Founded in 1994 by CEO Kathy Milner, Dover Foods has expanded steadily during nearly three decades as a manufacturer and supplier of premium CPGs to nearly every major grocery chain operating in its home region. Under Milner's tenured leadership, the company also built (launched in 2016) and expanded a successful co-packaging business, driving significant additional growth in the years leading up to the TVS transaction. The relationship with TVS will provide Milner and the Dover team with key growth capital and a closer partnership with one of the most-established players in North Carolina's thriving CPG space.
"Kathy Milner has built a great business in a very hot sector of the market. Dover Foods received a lot of attention from both strategic and private equity buyers immediately, providing Kathy with options in terms of a partnership. With nearly 30 years invested in the company, Kathy was adamant that she find a great cultural and operational fit. TVS's mission-oriented corporate philosophy, stalwart market position, and strong operational alignment ultimately provide to be that fit. The entire Benchmark International team is excited to watch Dover's next phase of growth and development."
