Oxfordshire-based company DFx Technology Ltd designs, develops and manufactures energy-efficient electronic solutions for the global beverage dispense and commercial lighting markets.
DFx has experienced very strong growth over the past years, increasing turnover by 25% year-on-year and establishing a strong reputation in both the global beverage dispense and commercial lighting markets, under their brands DFx Controls and Planetsaver LED lighting.
Advised by HMT, Percipient Capital invested 1.2 million in DFx Technology.
The company intends to use the investment to help fund and consolidate the rapid growth it is experiencing. As part of its growth strategy, DFx will invest heavily in a new high-tech manufacturing facility to be based in Witney, Oxfordshire. In addition, the company will convert their current premises into a dedicated Engineering Centre of Excellence, designed to facilitate the development of the most advanced energy-saving technologies over the next 10 years.
HMT LLP provided due diligence services for Percipient Capital.
