KBS Corporate Finance has advised on the successful disposal of Vertik-Al Limited, a world class provider of aluminium powder coating services.
Located in Birmingham, the company specialises in vertical and horizontal aluminium powder coating of products for the construction, rail, industrial and automotive industries. Products include extrusions, windows, doors, curtain walling, cladding and rainwater goods. The firm also fabricates and powder coats a range of louvres and aluminium security doors which are used in a wide variety of applications in the construction industry.
Founded over 50 years ago, Vertik-Al was the first company to apply powder to aluminium products in the UK, and in the years since, the company has grown from strength to strength through continued innovation and a quality product offering. Vertik-Al is a family owned business that has passed through the hands of two generations.
The company was acquired by an entity backed by venture capitalist, Jon Moulton. As part of a wider portfolio of investments in similar industry sectors, strategic and synergistic opportunities were central to Moulton’s motivations to acquire Vertik-Al on behalf of his family office.
Post-acquisition, Moulton has expressed a desire to develop Vertik-Al’s sales and marketing strategy, invest in product research and development and open the company to new export markets.
John Hunt, Director at KBS Corporate Finance, managed the deal through to completion.
