KBS Corporate advises on acquisition of Noberne Doors
Noberne Doors is a door manufacturing specialist based in Leeds.
The company was established in 1975 and has worked with many blue-chip clients over 44 years. Noberne specialises in security, fire, acoustic, x-ray, external doors and their reputation has led to them becoming well respected within their sector. This respect is bolstered by the company becoming founding members of the BM TRADA Q-MARK fire door scheme, the ASDMA and members of the British Woodworking Federation and attaining an FSC Chain of Custody certification.
The shareholders of Noberne Doors instructed KBS Corporate with the sale of their business in order to pursue other business plans. Due to the shareholders wishing for the company to achieve further growth, a research strategy that focussed on trade buyers and private equity firms was implemented.
The successful offer came from a private equity buyer Kerry Hill Limited, who are a subsidiary of Merino Private Equity. The firm invests in a range of businesses from a plethora of sectors including building, manufacturing and education. The purchase acts as a bolt on acquisition for the Kerry Hill portfolio company.
The deal was overseen by Matthew Sibley, KBS Corporate Deal Executive who commented, “I believe that we have found an excellent match as Noberne Doors will now been able to grow further; whilst Merino has developed their company portfolio further.”
