Founded in 1775 and based in Mandal, Norway, Mandals AS, along with its Swedish subsidiary Svenska Brandslangfabriken AB, is a world leader in advanced lay-flat hoses for agriculture, oil & gas, mining, fire-fighting and industry. Spun out in 2008, Mandals Technology AS is the undisputed world leader in circular looms for hose making. The businesses have experienced strong growth as farming becomes increasingly industrialized around the world and as oil drilling and gas fracking require more flexible options to move water and slurry.
Ray Morin, Director at C.W. Downer & Co., commented that “the Mandals businesses complement Fenner’s strength in woven and polymer-based products and will form a central part of Fenner’s hose activities.” Additionally Frank Merkel, Managing Director with C.W. Downer & Co., observed that “the Mandals transaction is a further example of our strength in the Scandinavian mid-market and our ability to effectively market mid-sized businesses to a carefully selected group of international strategic buyers.”
This is the third in a string of recently announced acquisitions for Fenner PLC in a single week. The company also agreed to acquire Norwegian Seals on August 7th, and signed a contract to purchase American Industrial Plastics-the Florida-based precision engineering group- on August 9th. C.W. Downer & Co.’s Boston office acted as financial advisor to Fenner on the acquisition of American Industrial Plastics.
“This is the way we like to structure acquisitions,” Fenner chief executive Nick Hobson said in a press interview. “We would be keen to make further acquisitions within our targeted areas which include seals, precision engineering and specialist polymers.” Fenner PLC is a leader in reinforced polymer technologies and a member of the FTSE 250.
The C.W. Downer & Co. team assisting Bimo Invest AS on this divestiture included Frank Merkel (Managing Director & Partner), Ray Morin (Director), Jochen Köhler (Vice President) and Stefan Meier (Analyst), all with the firm’s Frankfurt office.
