The deal provides an exit for US-based private equity firm Wind Point Partners.
In 2017 LDC won ‘National/International Deal of the Year’ for the buyout of Pelsis at the Yorkshire Dealmaker Awards.
In 2018 Pelsis was recognised for their fast-growing international sales in The Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200. Pelsis ranked at 50 after recording international sales of >£54m in its last financial year
