BDO has advised the shareholders of luxury books specialist Kingsbury Press Holdings on its sale to Bluetree Design and Print.
Founded in 1966 and headquartered in South Yorkshire, Kingsbury Press uses cutting edge technology and skilled craftsmanship to design and create bespoke books and marketing literature. Clients include some of the world’s most luxurious and well recognised brands.
Kingsbury Press will be incorporated into Bluetree Group’s existing brands, with the team retained to continue driving the luxury books and publishing work. The acquisition brings Bluetree close to a 700 strong team across their print and medical divisions, with additional equipment bolstering their existing product range.
"Just wanted to express our huge gratitude to the BDO corporate team for securing such a positive outcome in the sale of Kingsbury Press despite the current challenging market conditions. It is very apparent we couldn’t possibly have achieved this without the experienced team of corporate finance professionals supporting us through the many stages of the process and ultimately the final negotiations."
Edward Layton, Managing Director, Kingsbury Press Holdings Limited
“It has been a pleasure to work with the shareholders of Kingsbury Press. They will be delighted to watch the business flourish under its new ownership, where the technology and expertise built up over many years will have new opportunities to contribute to the exciting and fast-growing Bluetree Group environment.”
Jason Whitworth, Partner, BDO
