Quercus has direct experience of working with companies active in Industrial Technology and their associated supply chains (both product and service). Sub-sectors where we have direct experience include, inter alia: automotive (including OEMs); electrical components; power technologies; flow control; fluid & gas transfer; thermal technology; semi-con; packaging; industrial equipment; capital goods; vehicle technology & mobility; TICC; surface treatment; metal fabrication; metals; and precision machining.
Companies operating across the Industrial Technology sector benefit from several long-term, secular growth drivers and are often characterised by exposure to international markets. More specifically, long term themes driving growth include: reduced emissions (including CO2, NoX and methane); light-weighting; increased safety; greater digitisation; increased data transfer (both volume and speed); and sustainability (including reduced energy consumption).
As companies develop, commercialise and launch products that capitalise on these long-term trends, business models are adapting to geopolitical trends through increased onshoring, targeted vertical integration, focussed people development and automation (addressing skills shortages), new marketing models, partnering and IP development and protection.
Being a highly international sector, we benefit from our active involvement in the Terra Alliance. Through both proprietary relationships and the Terra Alliance, Quercus is able to access decision makers at the most senior levels in all key geographies including North America, Germany, France, Italy, Japan and China.
We leverage our expertise, experience and international reach to create lasting value, and our mission is to provide exceptional service to our clients.
“Mike Mortimor was simply superb. Transactions are stressful - Mike’s adeptness in pulling together different strands of the process, using not just his Corporate Finance knowledge but also his ex-CFO experiences, allowed us to execute with confidence and pace. Grace and humour can often be a rarity in fiscal matters, but it is Mike’s natural style. This remarkable style combined with his sheer talent and his eagerness to engage whenever needed, was just priceless. Most importantly, I felt very supported throughout the whole process - on my terms, not anyone else’s.”
“The achievements of the Wixroyd team, and the role our products have played in enabling design engineers across the UK to innovate and solve countless engineering challenges, has been a great source of pride for me and my brother Anthony as we have guided the Wixroyd Group over the last 30 years. Throughout the process, Mike and Quercus have demonstrated a deep understanding of our business and the sector in which we operate. This has been combined with high quality advice and service throughout. We are very excited about the enhanced opportunities that the combination with Essentra will generate”
“We have thoroughly enjoyed the journey with Keronite and its sale represents a good result for the company’s shareholders, including Azini Capital. We wish Matt and the team the very best of luck as they embark on the next stage of the company’s development. Quercus have been very good partners throughout and Mike’s sector knowledge, international connections and creativity were of great value to us throughout the process.”
“The Quercus team did a first class job. Amanda and Nick once again provided straightforward, objective and clear advice and their commercially focused, hands on approach made a real difference in getting the transaction over the line. We are delighted to welcome Santon to the group”
