Industrials is a broad term that covers a range of business sectors, from oil and gas, automotive and aerospace through to support services such as logistics, engineering, transportation and waste processing.

British businesses with manufacturing know-how, intellectual property and a strong market position are particularly attractive to international buyers.

Industrials with rising sales that can demonstrate impressive margins are demanding exceptionally high multiples.

Understanding the range of businesses and technologies to a micro level is the challenge we at Cavendish have set ourselves. Helping us achieve this objective are our specialist team led by experts with backgrounds in the engineering and finance together with years spent in corporate finance.

Our entrenched expertise in so many sub-sectors is matched by unrivalled contacts with leading UK and multinationals. In addition we can leverage centres of excellence within Oaklins such as the oil and gas team in Dallas, our aerospace team in Seattle or the automotive and aerospace hub in Germany.
