by Sanbra Group

Sub-industryBuilding products

Sanbra Group is an Irish-based manufacturer and distributor of a wide range of quality approved products and brands to an established network of retail and trade merchant customers across the building products market. Core brand Flair Showers is Ireland’s leading designer and manufacturer of shower enclosures and bath screens. Sanbra Group has bolstered its position in the market with the acquisition of Birmingham manufacturer Marflow Engineering, and Essex-based The Majestic Shower Company.

Marflow Engineering is one of the UK’s leading designers and manufacturers of luxury bathroom brassware, while The Majestic Shower Company is a manufacturer of luxury, innovative shower enclosures. The strategic acquisitions expand the brand portfolio and customer network of Sanbra Group, providing opportunities to extend offerings across the UK, Ireland, France, Italy and Benelux.

"BDO approached a long list of UK targets on my behalf. They did so in a professional, responsive and confidential matter, utilising their own relationship network but also opening doors where no previous relationship existed. They galvanised their teams in other departments to bring in expertise and relationships where required. They were available for advice and to serve as a sounding board for tactics. As a result, we successfully acquired Marflow Engineering and have a strong pipeline of acquisition targets. I am not aware of an acquisition search and approach capability of the same calibre available elsewhere."
