We are thrilled to have Bestport and WCC on board to support the future growth of the business. An MBO process can be challenging but Bestport and WCC provided us with the support and guidance that we needed, and we knew early-on that they were the right partners for us. This investment clearly demonstrates our confidence in this market and the future prospects for the business. Most importantly of all, the investment and support of Bestport and WCC will help Hilditch to grow the business both in the UK and internationally.
Hilditch is a tremendous company with a very strong market niche, and an excellent track record of customer service and growth. We are very excited to be backing the management team through this MBO and supporting their future growth ambitions.
We are delighted to complete our first deal as West Country Capital and to be working in partnership with Bestport, to support the growth of an excellent business like Hilditch. The South-West market is crucial for the UK, and we’re very pleased to be a leading investor of capital into this region.
