KBS Corporate Finance Oversees Sale of The Filter Design Company Limited
The Filter Design Company is a specialist designer and manufacturer of filters and automation systems, priding itself on offering comprehensive filtration solutions to a diverse international client base. The company has an excellent reputation winning the St Helens Chamber Small Business of the Year award and came runner up as Exporter of the Year for 2019.
The shareholders of The Filter Design Company, Phil and June Scott, approached KBS Corporate Finance to oversee the sale of their business in order to realise the value of their years of hard work and focus more on engineering challenges rather than the day to day running of an organisation.
The successful offer came from the United States-based Gentex Corporation. The Filter Design Company was already a supplier of Gentex Corporation providing a clear synergistic acquisition. Post completion, Phil Scott will remain with The Filter Design Company, all staff and sites will be retained with Gentex Corporation investing and expanding the current premises.
Associate Corporate Director at KBS Corporate Finance, Joe Norris, advised The Filter Design Company and commented: “The acquisition appears to be a perfect fit given the obvious synergies. Finalising and completing this deal was a prolonged and at-times difficult process that involved a lot of work on behalf of our clients, their solicitors and KBS Corporate Finance to get it over the line. However, it was well worth it in order to achieve an excellent outcome for all parties”
