Case Study: NAL Group
NAL Group is a leading last-mile logistics company. With a customer-first approach, the company warehouses, assembles, delivers and installs products such as dishwashers and other appliances, indoor and outdoor furniture, and electronics on behalf of major retailers. NAL Group was created through the merger of Installs LLC and North American Logistics Group LLC.
NAL Group is the result of two transactions. First, Graycliff partnered with the management of Installs to buy out the founders and augment growth initiatives. Installs then merged with North American Logistics Group to capitalize on their highly complementary and unique capabilities. Both management teams remained with the merged business.
