Industrials Private Equity

Supporting UK manufacturing

Manesh Pandya, CEO
ELE Advanced Technologies

As a leading UK industrials private equity firm, LDC has a strong track record of supporting industrials businesses, having invested more than £1bn into the sector. Nearly 170 manufacturing & specialist engineering industrial companies have chosen LDC as their private equity partner.  

We are committed to backing British industrial businesses across a wide range of sub sectors – including aerospace, specialist engineering and power generation.

Some of our recent successes include the international buy & build strategy at chemicals business A-Gas which saw profits increase 100% and our partnership with fume extraction and filtration business BOFA International that helped the company to double revenues.

This remains one of the UK’s most dynamic sectors – leading innovation and exports, and one which can benefit strongly from private equity investment.

In the last five years alone, we have invested nearly £250m to support more than 15 industrials businesses.

Our current portfolio includes a diverse range of manufacturing firms including Kee Safety, Precision Micro, ELE Advanced Technologies and Stuart Turner.

In every case we support the leaders of these businesses to fuel innovation, acquisitions or growth in international markets.
