Askern Steel Reels

Management buyout of Askern Steel Reels

Strategic Corporate Finance acted as lead deal advisers to management on the management buyout of the business and certain assets of Askern Steel Reels.

The Askern Steel Reels business has been established for 10 years and manufactures steel reels from its premises in North Anston Industrial Estate, Sheffield. Its customers use the reels, which tower up to 28 feet in height, to transport and sell products such as electric cabling and wire rope.

Zoto Engineering Limited was formed to make the acquisition of the business and certain assets of Askern Steel Reels.

Strategic Corporate Finance acted for John Clarke, the Managing Director, as lead deal adviser from an early stage, including negotiating with the vendors, structuring the transaction, finance raising and advising on all matters through to legal completion of the transaction.

“I plan to build on our position as a leading supplier of steel reels in the UK. The financial resources now available to us gives our experienced management team the ability to take the business forward with confidence and to stimulate and develop future growth.”
