After a decade of success and growth, Hall Industrial was sold as part of a strategic acquisition to an out-of-province buyer for a multiplier well beyond the industry average.

Let Us Be Your Guide.
You Have a Destination. We'll Help You Get There.
Like all entrepreneurs and business owners you started your business with a dream. Part of that dream was likely to become financially independent, have control over your life and have the freedom to enjoy a meaningful life with the people you care about the most.
At some point, things got off course. Business ownership presented more questions than answers and more problems than solutions. Feelings of hope and optimism were overtaken by stress and anxiety as the pressure of business ownership began to set in. You slowly found yourself losing control of parts of your business. Ownership has now become an anchor that is weighing you down mentally, emotionally and physically.
