Our client, Victorian Sliders, has successfully secured a new multi-million pound investment from growth capital investor, BGF.

Our Corporate Commercial team led by Gerallt Jones, Andrew Hoad and Kate Wilson advised the company on the £4 million investment, with Siôn Tudur advising the management team.

Victorian Sliders, headquartered in Ammanford, is the largest manufacturer of vertical sliding windows in Europe and exclusive providers of ECOSlide sash windows. This second round of funding from BGF will support the company’s ambitious growth plans to become a world-class manufacturer.

Steve Winslet, Group Managing Director of Victorian Sliders, said:

“Over the last eighteen months, we’ve already driven huge improvements in quality, reliability, lead times and customer service in general. Now, with an experienced new leadership team in place, our focus is on implementing a customer-centric strategy that puts the Installers, Housebuilders, Local Authorities and Housing Associations we work with first.

“In the months and years ahead, we’re determined to continue those improvements, and we’re delighted to be entering this exciting new era.”

Gerallt Jones, Partner at Hugh James said:

“This further investment from BGF is a significant vote of confidence and success for our client. We’re proud to work with this industry leader, rooted in Wales, at a very exciting time for the company and delighted to support them in their ongoing success.”
