The sector has seen advancements in automation and specialist engineering skills in which Britain remains a global leader. Our industrial and manufacturing sector covers activities such as:
- Engineering & manufacturing
- Energy and resources
The M&A activity of the industrial and manufacturing sector has been flourishing in the past years with a continuous interest from institutional investors as well as larger groups both in the UK and overseas.
Our corporate finance team has recently advised on significant deals in the Industrial and manufacturing sector in the Thames Valley and the South of England and benefits from an in-depth knowledge of the sector.
The development of process automation and manufacturing technology has enabled the engineering and manufacturing sector to maintain a constant growth in recent years. We have advised many innovative manufacturing companies on MBOs, fundraisings and disposals in this sector.
The construction activity has been observing a constant growth for the past few years, aided by major projects developed by the government and the growing trend of green and sustainable construction. We have advised a significant number of building products and construction businesses on acquisitions, MBOs and disposals.
The Energy & Resources sector has been turbulent based on commodity pricing in the past few years with a decrease in activity. But the development of renewable energies is creating new opportunities for the sector. We have recently advised both oil & gas businesses and renewable energy firms on acquisitions, disposals and fundraisings.
