BGF has invested in secure lock and hardware supplier, Brisant Secure, which is based in the East Midlands and West Yorkshire.
The investment will support Brisant’s ambitious long-term growth plans and enable the company to develop further innovations and opportunities.
Brisant partners, Nick Dutton and Steve Stewart, remain majority shareholders and Seb Saywood, a BGF investor, joins them on the Brisant board. Dutton and Stewart will continue to be responsible for the management and direction of Brisant and will continue to drive product innovation.
Since bursting onto the locksmith scene in 2013, Brisant has been raising the standards of the fenestration industry by helping fabricators and installers sell more doors. Brisant is recognised for quality, security, and service. The company recently featured in the annual Sunday Times Virgin Atlantic Fast Track 100 for the second consecutive year as one of the UK’s fastest growing businesses.
Brisant Secure, joint-CEO, Dutton says: “BGF’s investment is a milestone in Brisant’s development, and it marks the start of an exciting new era for the business.
“We’ve reached a point where we have more ideas for innovative hardware than we could bring to market, and with BGF as an invested partner we can explore these opportunities and channels with this incredible pool of experience, knowledge and contacts. I think it’s also significant that such a prominent investor recognises the growth and potential of our sector.”
Saywood says: “Brisant Secure is a pioneer in improving security standards to support its fenestration customers and ultimately homeowners. The scope for innovation is significant as homeowners need enhanced security and technology-led protection for their homes. Nick and Steve’s passion for their customers and products shines through. We look forward to working with them and the rest of their team as they expand their product range and continue their incredible growth journey.”
The deal was led for BGF by Saywood and Aaron Baker.
