Steve Nienke and Denis Dieker of Midwest Drywall commented “we reviewed several options for the transition of our business and a sale to our employees through an ESOP was the clear choice for us. We look forward to taking Midwest Drywall to the next level along with our employees as partners and owners. We appreciate all the guidance and leadership the PCE team provided in the ESOP transaction.
Eric Zaleski of PCE stated “throughout the decision-making process, Steve and Denis set up the ESOP to provide further benefit to their most prized asset – the employees.
