Supporting industrial and manufacturing innovation.

LDC has proven experience in the industrials sector having completed over 160 transactions and deployed more than £1.1billion of equity investment over the last 35 years.

Specialist engineering and manufacturing remains one of the UK’s most dynamic industry sectors. Many UK businesses have proved to be resilient through economic volatility and continue to account for a significant proportion of British exports.

We are committed to backing British industrial businesses and maintain a focus on firms with specialist manufacturing capabilities across a wide range of sub sectors, such as aerospace, specialist engineering and power generation.

Our investment in companies as diverse as Kee Safety to MB Aerospace and Aqualisa to BOFA International provides much-needed capital to fuel innovation, acquisitions and growth in international markets.
