Amcomri Group acquires specialist print business
Amcomri Group Limited, the fast-growing specialist in British engineering and manufacturing has recently confirmed the acquisition of Bex Design & Print, a specialist print business providing quality services in the electronics and other sectors.
Bex Design & Print Ltd (“Bex”), based in Wiltshire, was originally known as Serobex, and was founded in 1987 with just two employees. The company moved to its current premises in 1995 and rebranded as Bex Design & Print. Since then the business has grown considerably while developing a strong reputation for quality, reliability and customer service.
In 2005, Ian Board became Managing Director and under his management the company has made substantial investment in state-of-the-art machinery in order to to significantly reduce lead times and costs. The continued investment in the best equipment available has also meant that Bex Design & Print can now offer the widest range of designs and materials and has become a key supplier to a number of new markets and sectors.
Jessica Painter, a partner at Amcomri Group’s advisors, Watersheds, said “Amcomri Group is a fast-growing, acquisitive group of quality British engineering and manufacturing businesses. Over the past four years the group has acquired nine SMEs in the industrial sectors and has a wealth of experience in optimising business performance. We recognised that Amcomri Group was a good fit with Bex as they are already a highly respected brand, and as a specialist printer they enjoy a particularly strong reputation within manufacturing industries.”
Mark O’Neill of Amcomri Group said: “Bex is an extremely well-run business that has performed particularly well during the recent difficult trading period. The company is a particularly good fit with our growing group of specialist electronics businesses and we look forward to working with Ian Board and the team at Bex to deliver further success to the business.”
Ian Board said “Having spent decades building a successful business, our family wanted to make sure that succession planning was in place to ensure the firm’s next iteration was a positive one, and also to protect the job security of the loyal colleagues who have contributed to Bex Design & Print’s continued growth and success. We have been delighted with how the sale has gone, and feel we have directed Bex towards a very promising future through the sale to Amcomri Group. I will be continuing in the business supported by the existing management team, as well as the Amcomri team who will be extremely beneficial to us as we continue to grow our business.”
We would like to thank you, our loyal customers for your continued support and we look forward to working with you during this exciting time.
