KBS Corporate has advised on the management buy in of Archbond Limited, a manufacturer of laminated plastic products.
Based in Leicester, the company specialises in the manufacture of isothermal pool coverings, timber floor underlay, technical textile laminates, impact carpet and load dispersing mouldings, which are supplied across the UK and throughout Europe.
Established in 1985 by our client, the company has grown considerably and is now considered as one of the UK’s foremost manufacturers, laminators and embossers of pool covers. Our client felt that, having taken the company so far, the time had now come to retire.
KBS Corporate conducted a concentrated research strategy which targeted around 40 carefully selected companies within the sector, resulting in multiple potential buyers registering their interest. Ultimately, a proposed management buy in deal through a private investor offered the best terms for our client whilst granting Archbond the opportunity to achieve further growth within the sector.
Sonia Cottrell of KBS Corporate advised our client throughout the process.
