Whilst the so-called demise of British industry might have affected this sector, we have worked with some interesting and successful niche engineering businesses. A number of transaction managers at Oasis trained as engineers and worked in industry. We can therefore relate to a certain caution surrounding professional advisors! A recent transaction in this sector - the recent acquisition of Cox Thermoforming by our client, Wokingham Plastics, provides an interesting example of our work. The owners and Oasis identified scale as a simple requirements for success in this capital-intensive industry. We initially began investigating sale and acquisition, and only decided on this route as the best option a significant way into the process.
