Disposal of Dunbar and Boardman Partnership Limited

Our corporate finance team worked on the diposal of Dunabar & Boardman

Roffe Swayne were lead advisers to the shareholders of Dunbar and Boardman Partnership Limited in their acquisition by German based TÜV SÜD.

Dunbar and Boardman (D&B) are a UK based consultancy in the lift and escalator industry and have operations across the UK and Middle East. The acquisition provides TÜV SÜD with a strong position in the UK market, giving them the status of market leader in this space.

The completion of this transaction marks the end of longstanding relationship between D&B and Roffe Swayne who have been working together for a number of years to prepare the business for sale and maximise value ahead of going to market.

Peter Boardman commented; “Selling a business is akin to selling your family coupled with a part (or most) of your life that has been totally all consuming. It is not easy process and finding a partner through this transition is essential. I can now thank the Roffe Swayne team for their unfailing support during this process. One that for many is a one-off experience – as it was in my case after 34 years! Preparing for this eventuality is key and the RS team can offer assistance through all stages of the process.”
