Transworld Business Advisors of the Gulf Coast Sells Heavy Hitters - Tig Rig Welding Manufacturer



Mobile, AL – March 21, 2023 -  Transworld Business Advisors of the Gulf Coast has announced that a strategic buyer recently purchased Heavy Hitters from the company’s founder, Russell Lassiter, and his investment team. The sale is the result of a confidential sales process spearheaded by Transworld M&A advisory firm members Bill Whiston (Certified M&A Professional), Rebecca Semple (CFC), and Bill Kleinschrodt (CPA, CVA, CFC).


“While the buyer wishes to remain confidential, we are excited and optimistic that they possess the resources and culture to take this business forward, scaling it nationally and internationally,” Whiston said. “We look forward to seeing what they achieve in the future.”


Whiston added that the success of this transaction was directly related to Lassiter’s strategic development of this business. 


“Heavy Hitters had developed an innovative product, secured reliable overseas suppliers and a great team to assemble the products,” he said. “They worked with highly skilled welders that demonstrated their TIG rigs performed quickly and effectively, often under tight and difficult circumstances. That combined with the knowledge and experience of the Transworld team to secure appropriate buyers allowed us to put together a successful deal that will allow this business to reach the next level.”
