Investment in Shaftec Automotive by Ardenton Capital Corporation

Client nameArdenton

The BDO Midlands transaction service team has advised on Ardenton Capital Corporation's investment in Shaftec Automotive.

Based in Birmingham, Shaftec has over 20 years established itself as a leading supplier of remanufactured and new parts to the motor trade, with a focus on transmission, steering and braking components. The investment by Ardenton is the third in the West Midlands following the establishment of a UK office by the Canadian headquartered private equity corporation in early 2017.

The BDO team impressed us with their technical ability and work ethic to get the job done. This deal had a number of complexities throughout the process which through numerous conversations and analysis BDO helped us to dissect and understand. The team provided risk based feedback and challenge, working to our timetable to get the deal done. It was a pleasure to work with the team and we would not hesitate to use them on our next deal.”
