Ventcroft Limited - a perfectly conducted deal

10 January 2022

RSM’s corporate finance team has advised on the sale of Ventcroft Limited, a family-owned manufacturer of fire performance cables based in Runcorn, Cheshire.

The client

Ventcroft, founded in 1989 by Chairman Frank Rotheram, operates from a state-of-the-art 107,000 sq. ft facility. It supplies customers across the UK, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa through a network of specialist electrical, fire, and security product wholesalers and distributors.

Ventcroft has been acquired by NKT, a Denmark-headquartered group focused on the design, manufacture, and installation of low-medium and high-voltage cable solutions. The collaboration with NKT will further facilitate the development of new products and markets, thus enhancing future growth.

RSM’s solution

RSM’s M&A team advised the vendors. Using its deep sector knowledge to package the opportunity and identify suitable purchasers, RSM managed a discreet process and negotiated all aspects of the deal. 

Transaction team: Ian Latham and Matthew Kells. 


‘RSM’s understanding of the business, its potential for future development, and the key drivers of the market were critical in helping to identify the right home for the business.’
