Entaco, a Redditch-based medical devices manufacturer, has undergone a management buyout and received a £1m investment from private equity firm Traditum.

The buyout was led by Entaco’s managing director, Steve Brown, who will now become group CEO.

Traditum’s £1m investment will fund payments to former shareholders and provide growth capital, enabling Entaco to invest in machinery and personnel improvements.
