Are you thinking of selling your business?
Contact our Director of Acquisitions privately and in confidence
The Parts Alliance has invested into the growth of its UK network by buying member and non-member companies from owners who have decided to crystallize their investment and retire, knowing that the legacy they have created will be honored and built on. Typically, the owner stays with the business and enjoys access to funding and the benefits of being part of a bigger group while de-risking their wealth, or they retire and in some cases, re-invest as a shareholder. We have completed 9 acquisitions since 2012 and have many family members still engaged with our businesses. In all these acquisitions we preserved the original trading brand names and identity of each company, embracing the diversity and power this gives us as a group. We believe it’s important for our customers and staff that we build on the foundations of what made the original business successful, so the retention of the original local brand and staff is a key point to The Parts Alliance’s success.
For your staff that have aspirations of bigger more challenging roles, being part of such a large and growing company creates access to opportunities that wouldn’t necessarily be possible as a regional company, and indeed many of those key individuals in recent acquisitions have already embraced new responsibilities. Opportunities, incentive and training schemes for your staff all help to create a buzz of excitement through what could potentially be an anxious time for them, if not fully involved in the integration process.
Confidentiality is massively important to anyone considering selling their business and our track record in keeping recent acquisitions confidential until completion speaks for itself (we know how quickly gossip travels in our industry!). To ensure there is a natural separation of data we have engaged a Director of Acquisitions. Charles Jonathan sits outside the daily operations and is a former owner and founder of one of our businesses, so he understands how the business works and also the mechanics and emotions involved with selling a business that you have created.
