“We’ve had Gray, Gray & Gray as our accounting firm for more than 30 years,” says Don. “They first came to our attention through their work with NEFI and the Massachusetts Oilheat Council, which is now MEMA. They really seemed to know our industry and had an appreciation of the unique challenges we face on a day-to-day basis.”
That call 30-plus years ago evolved into a close relationship between Atlantic-Pratt and Gray, Gray & Gray that includes much more than tax compliance and financial statements.
“We rely on Gray, Gray & Gray for the information, insight and guidance we need to keep our company growing. From financial advice to helping us with multiple acquisitions, they have become an important part of our family’s business,” says Don. “They are always right there with astute advice and recommendations.”
Atlantic-Pratt Energy has grown both organically and through selective, carefully structured acquisitions. Over the years the company has received assistance from Gray, Gray & Gray in structuring the most favorable deals and financing acquisitions. “Their experience in mergers and acquisitions in the energy industry has proven to be invaluable for us,” according to Don.
Don Nogueira and his son, Jake, have also turned to Gray, Gray & Gray for help in preparing a succession plan that will ensure a strong and thriving business will be in place for a fourth generation.
