Industrials & Manufacturing


The UK Manufacturing industry continues to face new challenges and opportunities, with the most successful industry experts expanding overseas and taking advantage of new technologies, markets and favourable exchange rates. Whilst the result of the Brexit vote created some uncertainty, UK manufacturers are generally enjoying a very good trading environment.

Business owners continue to debate the costs and rewards of manufacturing and operating overseas whilst supply chains are continuously restructured.

M&A activity remains buoyant with strong interest from global strategic acquirers and private equity investors for businesses with manufacturing capabilities and unique patented products.

The Spectrum team has advised on a number of significant deals in the industrials and manufacturing sector. Our past deal experience and current areas of expertise include:

  • Machinery
  • Security
  • Food production and packaging
  • Medical equipment manufacturing

“Spectrum worked tirelessly to support the Management Team and maintain momentum throughout the MBO process. The team were quick to build an understanding of our business and applied great attention to detail in all aspects of the transaction. They were instrumental in our negotiations and structuring the deal. Key to this was Spectrum’s deep knowledge of the private equity markets and their ability to introduce us to a number of potential investors, ultimately selecting Maven, who share our enthusiasm and who will add value to the business. We have also been impressed with Spectrum’s knowledge of the debt markets which was a critical factor in bringing the deal to a successful conclusion. We would not hesitate to recommend them to any management team considering a buy-out.” Patrick Sparkes, Managing Director, Westfield Medical
