KBS Corporate Advises on Sale of Saber Diamond Products Limited
Saber Diamond Products Limited specialises in the supply of a diverse range of diamond cutting and drilling products and accessories for the construction and hire industries, and also provides a bespoke manufacturing service using state-of-the-art German production facilities. Established in 1995, Saber was formed by Robert and Denise Huxley. The Company merged with Impact Diamond Tools in 2001, acquiring its assets and therefore facilitating expansion of the business.
After 26 years in the business, Robert and Denise Huxley approached KBS Corporate with the sale of their business in order to facilitate their retirement plans. During initial discussions it became apparent that the continuity for the staff, client base and company legacy was important to the shareholders. Due to these factors KBS Corporate implemented a research strategy with a primary focus on UK trade buyers.
The approach attracted 27 interested parties, which predominately consisted of trade with some investment buyers. The successful offer came from Abracs Limited, a UK trade buyer based in Yorkshire. The acquisition acts as part of Abracs Limited’s growth via acquisition strategy and will enable the company to increase their market share and client base.
Fabio Rambelli, KBS Corporate Associate Director, advised Saber Diamond Products Limited throughout.
