KBS Corporate Oversees Sale of Key Management Systems Limited
Key Management Systems Limited is a specialist designer and manufacturer of access control systems, having established itself as the UK’s leading supplier of residential access control products and services.
Timothy Gregory, Alan Cooney and Timothy Rogers, the shareholders of Key Management Systems Limited, instructed KBS Corporate with the sale of their business in order to enable them to pursue unrelated business interests.
KBS Corporate implemented a diverse research strategy which resulted in 58 interested parties being identified. The successful offer was from Midlands based CAME UK. The company is a well-established trade buyer who benefits from an international client base.
President of CAME S.p.A. Andrea Menuzzo commented: “KMS became a real target for CAME towards the end of 2019 where we were impressed with its solutions offered and state of the art cloud-based management system. CAME takes great pride in being at the forefront of both technology and connectivity and we soon found that KMS shared these exact same values.”
Managing Director of CAME UK, James Bostock said: “CAME UK is delighted to be able to welcome KMS into our CAME family and extremely grateful for the fantastic opportunity we have been granted by our corporate headquarters to further expand our UK operations into new market sectors alongside emerging product technologies that KMS will provide.”
“Working alongside the existing management team at KMS throughout the acquisition process we quickly realised that both CAME and KMS shared the same quality values that create a perfect starting block to look forward into how both companies can work together to improve our product offer, business operations and position in the market.”
Andrew Dodd, Corporate Director at KBS Corporate, advised Key Management Systems Limited throughout the process.
