KBS Corporate Advises on the Sale of ARC Building Solutions
ARC Building Solutions is a market leader in the manufacture and supply of cavity fire barriers to the construction and house building markets.
The company is based in Leeds and was founded in 2008. Over the years the business has developed an excellent reputation due to their high standards and award-winning products. ARC Building Solutions has generated an enviable blue-chip client list, with the company earning preferred supplier status with multiple national housebuilders.
ARC Building Solutions approached KBS Corporate in order to source investment which would facilitate further growth of the business.
The opportunity attracted a wide range of interest from trade, private investors and private equity firms, with over 20 interested parties coming forward in total.
The ultimate offer came from Newable Capital and will provide ARC Building Solutions with the investment in order to achieve growth. This has already enabled ARC Building Solutions to relocate to a larger factory which will better enable improvements to the productions process to meet growing demand.
Peter Barrand, who has recently been appointed as managing director of Newable Capital, said: “Newable Capital has been established to support excellent UK companies working at the heart of the economy. The team has screened over 300 investment opportunities this year and ARC is the first of a number of strategic investments we plan to make in the coming months. We are delighted to be supporting Andrew, Russell and the team through the next phase of growth.”
Andrew Danzey, founding shareholder at ARC, added: “ARC has been looking for a new investor for a period of time who can help provide the finance and support to help us drive the business forward as we move to the new factory, develop new products and expand across the UK. We are delighted to be working with Newable Capital to help realise the potential of the business.”
