Kee Safety is a leading global supplier of fall protection solutions, safety railing systems, and safe access equipment for working at height.
LDC took a significant stake in Kee Safety in 2011. LDC worked in close partnership with the management team to implement a strategic growth plan which included product innovation, optimising and expanding routes to market, driving international expansion and augmenting organic growth with complementary acquisitions.
This resulted in turnover growth of 37% from £27million to £37million and employee growth of 50% from 180 to 270.
In 2013 LDC completed the sale of its stake in Kee Safety in a £90million deal with Dunedin with LDC re-investing to further support the business’s fast growth strategy.
In October 2017, LDC exited its investment in Kee Safety having supported the management team since 2011.
LDC has invested considerable time and resource in our business. We established a close working relationship with the team at the time of the MBO and the business has benefited significantly. Chris Milburn, Chief Executive, Kee Safety
