HBA Member Top Master Is Acquired by Clio Holdings

Clio Holdings, LLC of Birmingham, Mich., has acquired Top Master, Inc. of Kansas City, Kan., expanding its footprint of leading regional countertop fabrication businesses to eight states.

Top Master, a portfolio company of CID Capital, Inc. of Indianapolis, Ind., is a designer, fabricator and installer of a comprehensive line of custom countertop products, including granite, quartz and solid surface, used in both residential and commercial applications.

Founded in 1984, Top Master has operations in five locations primarily serving the Kansas, Iowa, Missouri and Nebraska markets.

The Company is recognized for its extensive product offering and unmatched commitment to customer service.

Clio was founded in 2016 with a vision to create an industry leading supplier and fabricator of countertops, providing the capital and operational expertise to implement best practices across this highly fragmented industry.

According to Michael Varone, president of Top Master, “Partnering with Clio will allow us to continue our commitment to customer service while enhancing the products, services and opportunities we can offer to our customers, suppliers and team members.”
