Oliver Hoffman, National Head of M&A at Mazars, said

Clyde is another fantastic example of the demand for strong entrepreneurial businesses in the Yorkshire market. The transaction reflects a great success story for the shareholders, and we were thrilled to be able to support them through the process

Victoria Inness, Partner at Knights said:

It was a pleasure to work with Steve Cragg, Miles Ratcliffe and the selling shareholders and advise them on this important transaction.  The growth of the business has been hugely impressive over the past three years and we know from our experience advising in the sector that there are huge opportunities ahead as the energy transition gathers pace.  We also really enjoyed working with the team at Mazars

Steve Cragg, Managing Director and former Shareholder of Clyde said:

We chose Mazars to represent us for many reasons one of which was to access their international network. In Addtech, they found a buyer that is an excellent fit that will enable further growth and development of the Company. The Mazars and Knights teams guided us through the sale process with professionalism, responsiveness and plenty of smiles and were great to work with
