Clearwater International UK advises on the MBO of Pyroguard

Clearwater International UK has advised the shareholders of Pyroguard, an independent manufacturer of fire resistant glass, on its MBO backed by ESO Capital Partners (ESO).

Pyroguard manufactures and supplies high performance fire glass to architects, specifiers, contractors and construction professionals, enabling them to meet all their fire safety glazing requirements via a single source. The business has expanded from its initial target markets of the UK, Ireland and the Netherlands to supply customers in France, Germany, Scandinavia and further afield.

The company has experienced significant organic growth over the past four years, and this investment from ESO will allow the management team of Pyroguard to accelerate their expansion plans.

ESO is a London-based investment firm providing hybrid private-capital solutions to European small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
