Woodbridge continues to refine its innovative marketing approach to completing successful transactions in the lower middle-market. The company enjoys an impeccable reputation for integrity, creativity and persistence in delivering results to clients.
Throughout the 1990′s, the company completed transactions in a range of industries, serving nearly every type of enterprise: retailers, manufacturers, service providers and distributors.
In 2004, the company pioneered the use of video marketing in the mergers and acquisitions industry. Woodbridge’s first company marketing video was produced for Hitchcock Furniture, a New England-based manufacturing icon founded in 1818. Here’s a link to the Hitchcock video. Woodbridge integrated video presentations into its sell-side process – a highly successful marketing component that has benefited clients and distinguished Woodbridge from other M&A firms. At this time, the firm also embarked on an accelerated growth plan to become a nationally recognized firm servicing the lower middle-market.
The Company opened its New Jersey office in 2005. Expansion continued in 2006 with the launching of the firm’s European office in the Netherlands, allowing Woodbridge to market its clients in Europe and the U.S. simultaneously. Also, in 2006, Woodbridge formed a wholly owned subsidiary, WG Securities, LLC which is a registered broker dealer.
In 2007, the firm was engaged by two Chinese mainland based companies, beginning Woodbridge’s ongoing reach into Asia. Select Woodbridge clients are marketed to buyers in India, China and Japan.
In 2008, Woodbridge closed its first deal in mainland China. The firm also opened offices in California, Boston, Sao Paulo, Brazil, and one in the heart of midtown Manhattan. In addition, Woodbridge has added 21 seasoned dealmakers to significantly expand its capacity to serve clients across the U.S. – and the globe.
The firm opened three new regional offices in 2009: Dallas, Chicago and Atlanta. In 2010 and 2011 Woodbridge expanded its Latin American roll out into Mexico and Central America.
In 2012 Woodbridge closed the Hidrotenencias – Acon Investment transaction which consisted of three hydroelectric projects located in Panama. To reflect the firm’s widening global practice, Woodbridge Group changed its name to “Woodbridge International.”
In 2013, Woodbridge continued to expand its international footprint. The firm closed its second Brazil-based deal and launched new offices in Shanghai and Hong Kong, China, Tokyo, Japan, Jerusalem, Israel, Bogota, Colombia, Pune, India – and to meet growing demand in Brazil, the firm ramped up its Sao Paulo, Brazil office to a total of five dealmakers.
