KBS Corporate Completes Sale of GT Certification Limited
GT Certification Limited operates within a niche industry to offer comprehensive measurement, calibration, and testing services to several clients throughout the UK and internationally. The company has experienced considerable growth since its foundation, with the strength of its workforce and service offering enabling it to build up an excellent reputation within its sector and maintain a high-value, long-standing client base.
Gary Thompson and Nancy Thompson, the shareholders of GT Certification Limited, approached KBS Corporate with the sale of their business to help realise their retirement plans. During initial discussions it became apparent that the shareholders were keen to source a buyer who would ensure staff retention and enable further growth of the business.
This shaped KBS Corporate’s research strategy towards UK trade buyers, a highly successful approach which resulted in 44 interested parties being identified. The successful offer came from Construction Testing Solutions, the acquisition marks the second the company has made through KBS Corporate within 12 months, having previously acquired Silkstone Environmental.
Alex Medwecki, Corporate Deal Executive at KBS Corporate, advised GT Certification Limited throughout the process.
