Acting for individual representatives of ABCA Systems, The Endeavour Partnership’s corporate and commercial team worked alongside independent accountancy practice MHA Tait Walker on a significant inward investment which is expected to accelerate the company’s growth plans.
The investment from Trimountain Partners, alongside its investor partners including The Vorsprung Partnership and Cambridge Partners, was welcomed by ABCA, one of the UK’s leading fire and security experts.
ABCA Systems has a national footprint with headquarters in Newcastle and employs over 170 staff. With over 30 years of experience, the company serves a blue-chip client base in multiple industries including social housing, government, education, healthcare, hospitality and commercial.
The investment will see the company, which has an annual turnover of £25 million, continue to provide market-leading systems to its existing clients whilst driving its growth plans, which included carefully selected bolt-on acquisitions and investment in staff and infrastructure.
Phil Miller, lead seller from ABCA Systems commented: “We have worked with the team at The Endeavour Partnership on various transactions. Their values are similar to ours and their dedication and level of expertise provide us with confidence. This has been a significant deal for ABCA Systems and we are looking forward to future growth for the company.”
The Endeavour Partnership team was led by partner and head of corporate Nik Tunley alongside colleagues Deborah Kirtley, Theresa Carling, Alexandra Ketchley, Jessica Thompson, Sean Jackson, Carly Cornell and Atif Ayub.
Nik said: “The investment is positive for ABCA Systems and shows a progressive appetite for growth from a well-respected business. Our multi-departmental team demonstrated our diverse expertise and efficiency to support our corporate clients with specialist legal advice.”
