Nick Lloyd from our Corporate Team assisted by Ross Hayward, Ian Sharrock, Habiba Kasker and Amanda de Bruyn, recently advised on the successful management buy-out of Darke & Taylor (Holdings) Limited. The move has enabled Julian Butler, Keiron Richmond and Mark Swadling, who have all been in the business for a number of years and instrumental in its growth, to join alongside the existing owners, Simon Newton and Graham Winstone.

Darke & Taylor provide an impressive range of the design, installation, commissioning, testing and maintenance of mechanical, electrical and public health (MEP) services.

Nick Lloyd commented:

“Darke & Taylor has a rich history of each generation of management and owners growing the business and then passing it on to the next generation, and I think this is reflected in the behaviour and values of everyone at Darke & Taylor. What a great business and what a great pleasure to be able to assist in this round of regeneration.”

Simon Newton commented:

“The team at EMW did a fantastic job for us from start to finish, including initial discussions reviewing options, engaging with all parties involved in the deal, preparing and explaining the thorough legal documentation and addressing any risks or concerns. This was all done within the expected timescales and to the satisfaction of the entire MBO team which has given us a great platform from which to continue the sustainable growth of Darke & Taylor as an owner managed business.”
