Secondary buy-out of high-precision engineering company deal acted on by Corporate Partner

4th April 2023

Leicester-based Camloc Motion Control, a designer and manufacturer of motion control products, has been bought in an investment by private capital specialist Macaulay Capital.

Corporate Partner Rachael Reeves acted for Bath-based Macaulay Capital in the deal, which is said to support the next phase of Camloc’s growth.

The acquisition shows an appetite in the M&A market for private capital specialists to seek out new opportunities in the SME manufacturing sector.

Rachael Reeves said: “This has been a great opportunity for Macaulay Capital and offers strong growth prospects for Camloc – a great result for both parties and I wish them well in the future.”

Richard Bucknell, Macaulay Capital’s Chief Investment Officer, said: “Camloc is a great example of a high-quality business that, we believe, can exploit its market position to achieve sustained growth over the medium term, delivering both an attractive yield and capital appreciation for our HNW investors.

“Rachael and the wider HCR team were invaluable in helping us navigate the acquisition process and we look forward to working with them again on future transactions.”
