KBS Corporate Advises on Sale Of Engineering Safety Consultants Ltd
Engineering Safety Consultants Ltd is a specialist global provider of functional safety expertise and technical consultancy. The company was formed in 2009 and developed relationships with multiple blue-chip clients. Over the years, the company has developed a substantial foothold and benefits from offices in London, the North West and the North East.
Engineering Safety Consultants Ltd approached KBS Corporate with the sale of their business in order to facilitate the retirement of two shareholders. A key consideration for Engineering Safety Consultants Ltd was to maintain the retention of two other key shareholders.
Following initial discussions, KBS Corporate implemented a research strategy focusing on UK trade buyers and investment companies. KBS Corporate was able to generate 40 interested parties with the majority of interest coming from UK trade buyers. This resulted in four competing offers.
The successful offer came from ERM Limited, a leading global provider of management consultancy. The company is headquartered in London with offices in over 40 countries. ERM Limited is currently pursuing growth through acquisition, with Engineering Safety Consultants Ltd being the second acquisition of 2021.
Fabio Rambelli, KBS Corporate Associate Director, advised Engineering Safety Consultants Ltd and commented, “I wish all parties involved the best of luck with their future endeavours and I am confident that Engineering Safety Consultants, its management and staff will have a very successful future under the new ownership of ERM.”
