Trudeau & Trudeau Associates, Inc.
Where Dealmaking Matters
Trudeau & Trudeau Associates is a leading M&A advisory firm with over 40 years of dealmaking experience in 11 countries. T&T is headquartered on the 26th floor of One Boston Place in the heart of Boston, Massachusetts' financial district. The founders of the firm, brothers Bill and Mike, continue to be the transaction leaders and the driving force of the firm.
The Mission Statement at T&T has always been “to exceed the expectations of our clients with empathy and perseverance”
The Trudeau brothers’ entrepreneurial roots are traced back to their grandfather’s packaging and trucking company.
Trudeau discovers “fiberglass” and designs and builds a 2 seat fiberglass microcar prototype called the BEMCO which is featured on NBC’s Dave Garroway Show.
Mike & Bill's father Edward establishes a manufacturing company known as Edge Tool & Die located just south of the soon-to-be plastics capital of the world, Leominster, MA.
The family decides to sell the business and Bill & Mike handle the sale resulting in success. The idea of forming an M&A advisory firm is born.
T&T’s first location is a humble space in the lower level of a Braintree, MA office building. The opening is attended by many friends, politicians and family.
Trudeau’s first cross-continental transaction with the acquisition of Singapore Polymers by Teknor Apex from the Norwegian aluminum giant, Norsk Hydro.
T&T sells its first company with a transaction value in excess of $20 million. The business is a custom packaging contractor of GE Power Systems.
Continued transaction success and the increase in personnel dictate another expansion into larger office space in the Executive Business Park in Norwell, MA.
T&T’s first major technology transaction advised the management of Telephonics Corp on the acquisition of Systems Engineering Group, a software contractor.
Trudeau wins a highly competitive sale process on behalf of their client, Teknor Apex with the acquisition of the TPV unit from the Dutch materials giant, DSM.
Trudeau is hired to sell a major plastics distributor to provide an exit and estate enrichment for the owners. The company is sold to M. Holland at a premium
The Trudeau team advises global compounder, Teknor Apex, in their acquisition of Lanier Color Company.
T&T advised Elmer Buchta Trucking, a leading logistics and coal trucking company based in Indiana, in their sale to Transport Acquisitions.
"In my 30 year career, I have worked on many acquisitions and divestitures, but never with the timely and efficient results that I experienced working with the T&T team. Their professionalism and responsiveness allowed the deal to progress without any major problems which was underscored by their strong communication skills. They were truly a pleasure to work with!"

VP/General Manager, Polyvac Division
"We hired T&T to sell our family company after interviewing numerous M&A advisors. The Trudeau team has developed a very systematic approach to the sale process which ultimately maximized our gain from the sale. They flawlessly orchestrated a deal that met or exceeded our objectives. My family and I look forward to working with T&T again on another deal in the future."
