Birmingham’s Transcend Corporate advises on Ferrabyrne sale

The industrial products team at Birmingham’s Transcend Corporate has advised the shareholders of Ferrabyrne Holdings on the sale of the business to Dellner Polymer Solutions.

Ferrabyrne is a specialist supplier of rubber-to-metal bonded components and rail suspension systems and has been supported by YFM Equity Partners since their investment in 2016.

The business has more than doubled its turnover during this time and expanded into both China and India.

This exit marks the fourth successful exit from YFM’s Buyout Fund 1 that it raised in 2016.

Dellner Polymer Solutions provides technologically advanced vibration control, rubber fabrication and bonding solutions for a global market.

Ken Horton, MD and major shareholder of Ferrabyrne, said: “This transaction is an exciting step for the future development of Ferrabyrne. Our team is looking forward to realising the enhanced opportunities within the Dellner Group. Chris and his team have provided great support throughout the process. They ensured that we delivered a result that has allowed the shareholders to realise the value that we have created in Ferrabyrne.”

Transcend Corporate partner Chris Bill said: “We are delighted to have been able to help Ken, YFM and the team. The business is a strategic asset in the global rail industry and interest in acquiring it was high. In managing the sale process, we were able to identify Dellner Group as an ideal future home for Ferrabyrne. This transaction will provide both Dellner and Ferrabyrne with the opportunity to continue their growth and leverage the clear synergies that this exciting business combination now creates.”
