Maven sells laboratory firm as part of bigger deal

Manchester-based pharmaceutical laboratory supply specialist SME Hall Analytical has been acquired by private equity company Limerston Capital Partners alongside Glasgow’s Crawford Scientific Holdings from Maven Capital Partners.

Wythenshawe company Hall provides an array of products and services encompassing consumables distribution with expert advice, training and specialist analytical services to offer the UK’s leading pharmaceutical, research and laboratory testing providers with an end-to-end chromatography solution.

Limerston Capital pursues control investments in UK lower mid-market companies and seeks to create value through the firm’s operationally focused model.

The firm targets businesses with EBITDA of between £4m and £10m, that have a solid value proposition, but have potential for operational improvements, have mispriced underlying returns on capital or provide opportunities for strategic repositioning and consolidation.
