KBS Corporate Advises on the Sale of Chantry Chemicals
Chantry Chemicals offers a bespoke chemical and raw materials distribution service to the paint, printing inks, surface coatings, janitorial, lubricants, plastics, and sealants industries. The Company commenced trading in 1982, quickly establishing itself within its sector and building up lasting relationships with customers.
The shareholders of Chantry Chemicals, Phillip Jones and Jessica Taylor, instructed KBS Corporate with the sale of their business.
The company attracted 22 interested parties which led to a competitive bidding environment and enabled KBS Corporate to source a buyer within three months. The ultimate offer came from The White Sea & Baltic Co Ltd. The company periodically completes acquisitions to strengthen its position, the most recent of these being HiMar Performance Specialties.
Chantry Chemicals was advised by Charles Needham, Corporate Deal Executive at KBS Corporate, who commented: “The shareholders can now look to relax after a very difficult few years of running the company. It is always pleasing to see our clients realise a sale that allows them to happily walk away from the company. The buyers will be able to bolt the key assets of the Chantry Chemicals onto their business proceedings and benefit from an instantly increased volume of customers and stock levels.”
