Marsden Weighing Group

RSM’s M&A and private equity team have successfully advised on the sale of Marsden Weighing Group to Alcuin Capital Partners, and the management team, led by managing director Richard Black.

The client

Established over 90 years ago, Marsden has grown to become a leading manufacturer of weighing scales with customers spanning across a wide range of industries such as medical, industrial, veterinary and weight loss. Marsden scales are now available in 23 countries around the world.

Marsden has had particular success within the medical market and is the UK’s leading provider of scales to the NHS, holding a significant share in this market.

What RSM did

The transaction enables the remaining family shareholders to retire from the business and provides a strategic partner to support the management team as they market new products within the UK and internationally.

Transaction team: Stephen Orriss, Clodagh Tunney and Rhys Jennings

We were looking for the right partner to take our family business forward following this period of strong growth. RSM’s reach provided us with access to a wide range of potential buyers which ensured that we were able to find a partner that would continue the legacy of the business into the future. I would like to thank RSM for their hard work and professionalism throughout the process and in getting the deal over the line.’
