KBS Corporate Oversees Sale of Cotterill Cook (Printers) Limited
KBS Corporate has completed the sale of Birmingham based Cotterill Cook Printers Limited to The Nottingham Label Company Ltd for an undisclosed sum.
Established for more than 50 years, Cotterill Cook has gained a wealth of experience providing high quality commercial printing services. The company has formed strong long term relationships with many high profile blue chip companies operating in the Waste Management, Chemical and Pharmaceutical sectors and has developed products for a very unique market.
The motivation behind the sale of Cotterill Cook and the desire to pursue KBS Corporate’s specialised services was due to our client’s decision to retire. However, they are willing to offer full support and training to ensure a smooth handover.
By applying a highly proactive approach, utilising an extensive range of buyer contacts, KBS Corporate were able to identify and target prospective acquirers. The opportunity attracted no less than 21 expressions of interest, resulting in 4 buyer meetings and 2 bids.
The eventual acquirer, The Nottingham Label Company, is an experienced provider of printed products and print services across all industries. The company helps businesses to present, promote, label and market their products.
For the last three years, The Nottingham Label Company has been looking to expand both their service offering and geographical reach through the acquisition of similar and complementary businesses.
Rachael Griffin of KBS Corporate handled the deal through to completion and commented, “Both the buyer and seller were extremely motivated to complete the sale meaning we were able to achieve a quick turnaround. Both parties can now focus on what lies ahead and I would like to wish them a successful and prosperous future.”
