JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (August 24, 2016) – John Geiwitz, CBI Board Certified Business Intermediary and Senior Business Advisor with Transworld Business Advisors recently completed the business sale transaction of North Florida Roofing at 2730 Isabella Blvd. in Jacksonville Beach. According to Geiwitz, his initial contact with Chris Canipe, North Florida Roofing’s President began two years ago when Canipe was searching to buy a logistics business in northeast Florida.

During this time, Geiwitz and Canipe researched several related opportunities, however found no other businesses for sale which made more financial sense and were available immediately. The well established roofing firm which specializes in new roofs and roof replacements met Canipe’s ultimate criteria to buy a company that could thrive with the correct operational systems in place.
