Toronto, Ontario, Canada, December 7, 2022 – Beacon is pleased to announce the completion of another successful M&A mandate. Acting as the exclusive sell-side M&A advisor, Beacon assisted with selling one of the leading Toronto-based installers and distributors of automated commercial door systems.
