  • United Kingdom

    13-11-2013

    Global law firm Eversheds has advised Allied Glass on a tertiary buyout backed by CBPE Capital 

    Allied Glass is one of the largest glass manufacturers in the UK, manufacturing glass containers for the spirits industry. The company employs 600 people across two factory sites in Leeds and Knottingley. Specialising in the production of complex bottles, the business supplies its containers to some of the world's leading beverage companies.

    The Eversheds team led by corporate partner Robin Skelton, assisted by senior associate David Milne and associate Carly Gulliver.

    Robin Skelton commented:

    “Allied Glass and Eversheds have a longstanding relationship and it is a pleasure to have advised them in relation to this latest buyout deal. As a firm, we have advised the Allied Glass management team since 2002, including on their secondary buyout in 2010 backed by Equistone Private Equity. Throughout that time we have been Allied Glass’ sole legal advisers.

    “Allied Glass is a truly innovative and award winning company, renowned for taking glass packaging to new levels of quality and sophistication. This latest deal should help them take even greater strides into the rapidly expanding marketplace.”

    Alan Henderson, Managing Director at Allied Glass, said:

    “This latest deal is a real coup for Allied Glass and will help us to continue to invest in developing new technology to expand and develop our design and production capability and flexibility. Eversheds has been intrinsic in helping and advising us over the last decade and allowing a seamless transition between buyouts.”
