KBS Corporate Advises on Sale of Bourne End & Henley Security Systems
Bourne End & Henley Security Systems is a highly trusted fire and security systems installation and maintenance engineering company operating throughout Thames Valley, South East England. The comprehensive range of services offered by the company has earned it an excellent reputation in its sector and facilitated strong relationships with a number of customers.
The shareholder of Bourne End & Henley Security Systems, Roger Elam, approached KBS Corporate with the sale of their business to facilitate their retirement plans.
During initial discussions, it became apparent that realising the capital generated whilst enabling staff retention was highly important. This shaped KBS Corporate’s research strategy towards domestic trade.
This proved highly successful and resulted in the company attracting 37 interested parties with the successful offer coming from a UK trade buyer, New Path Fire and Security. The company is currently following a build-and-buy strategy having recently completed eight other acquisitions since 2021. The acquisition of Bourne End & Henley Security Systems will also enable the expansion of New Path Fire and Security’s geographic footprint.
Matthew Sibley, Corporate Deal Executive at KBS Corporate, advised Bourne End & Henley Security Systems throughout.
The shareholder of Bourne End & Henley Security Systems, Roger Elam, will be remaining as Managing Director post-sale.
