Mycroft Holdings Ltd is building a diversified assembly of Canadian operating companies whose focus is wholesale distribution and/or light manufacturing, where there is recurring revenue, business to business transactions, and where its prior experience lies.
Mycroft’s Founder and Principal, Matt Sauder, has over 25 years’ experience in both specialty manufacturing and wholesale distribution. Matt is putting this experience to work to assist business owners interested in transitioning their companies to new ownership. Matt’s work experience has included positions in sales, operations, line management, account management, and executive leadership, which positions him well for the challenges of being a business owner.
Subsequent to an acquisition the strong operational experience of the Mycroft Team will help ensure that the business continues to prosper, and that any of its obligations are fully met. Some areas of experience that are relevant to most of the businesses that Mycroft would invest in are: Lean Business Practices; Customer Retention; Successful Selling Techniques; Cash Management and Employee Relations.
In short, Mycroft Holdings Ltd is well positioned to look after the legacy responsibilities to the staff, the customers, and to the business itself, which come from the acquisition of a private company.

BISSETT FASTENERS LTD.
Founded by Mr. Lance Bissett in 1929, our company has grown from a single location in Vancouver, to Canada’s largest privately-held distributor of construction fasteners and related accessories for professional users. Still headquartered in Vancouver, Bissett now has 11 locations across the country from British Columbia to Nova Scotia. Bissett has a long history of family ownership which continues today. In 2015, Lance Bissett Ltd purchased the assets of another long standing Canadian fastener company, Canadian Industrial Distributors or CID. CID was founded by Mr. Robert Napier in 1945 as General Shipping Equipment and Supplies, a shipping room equipment and supply business. In 1986 General Shipping Equipment and I.H. Caswell & Co. joined together to become Canadian Industrial Distributors Inc. For a period of time after the acquisition, we operated the business as CID Bissett Fasteners Limited in Eastern Canada. On 1 March, 2016, we announced the merger of Lance Bissett Limited with its wholly owned subsidiary CID Bissett Fasteners Limited and we changed our name to Bissett Fasteners Limited.
Bissett Fasteners Ltd. is Canada’s leading wholesale distributor of construction fasteners and related accessories for professional users.Visit Website
