Business Partnership Corporate

Sirus Microtech Ltd acquired by private investors


Protective clothing manufacturer


Founded in 1985, this business developed from a manufacturer and installer of clean room environments into one of the UK’s leading suppliers of disposable protective clothing.

Trading as Specialty Textiles, the company had carved a niche in the supply of imported protective clothing to both trade end users and retail customers. All sales were initiated through an e-commerce website.

Sourced from Asia, the products were of high quality yet competitively priced, which enabled the company to sell large volumes into price sensitive environments and win substantial contracts, including the forensic services.

Once on the market, the business generated huge interest and all interested parties were capable of funding the acquisition of 100 per cent of the shares. The eventual buyer was the first party to meet the vendors and the time span from initial meeting to completion was less than 10 weeks.
