Buyer’s due diligence services to a library and school supplies and solutions company

Baker Tilly provided due diligence services to DEMCO, Inc, a library and school supplies and solutions company, in their acquisition of Evanced Solutions, Inc., a developer of software and technology solutions for libraries.

This transaction was a bookend to DEMCO's earlier asset acquisition of Highsmith, a supplier of educational products and library supplies, from W.W. Grainger Inc. Baker Tilly also provided due diligence services on this transaction.

Headquartered in Madison, Wis., DEMCO is a subsidiary of Wall Family Enterprise, Inc., a family-owned business including eight library and education-focused companies located in the United States and the United Kingdom.

As this series of acquisitions attests, DEMCO is continuing its story of providing new products and solutions to address the evolving needs of library and education professionals.
