Williams Controls, Inc. ~ 15,000,000 ~ July 2002

Williams Controls – the world’s leader in electronic throttle controls for the heavy truck market – needed capital and help from a strategic partner to take its existing technology to the much larger automotive market. After an exhaustive search failed to produce an acceptable merger partner, the Company turned to Taglich Brothers to find a solution. The result was a significant investment from a “strategic” financial partner that provided both the capital and industry expertise required by Williams.
