Full-service law firm Mackrell.Solicitors has advised the shareholders of Specific Environments Limited in the acquisition of the company by Angstrom Technology, a leading US company behind the design and production of cleanrooms used by the life sciences and pharma industry.

Specific Environments is a design and build specialist for all aspects of cleanrooms, containment and controlled environments. It has a number of blue-chip clients including Glaxo Smith Kline, Pfizer, and the NHS, and the acquisition represents an exciting opportunity for Angstrom Technology, which has already completed three acquisitions of similar companies during the last six months.

The transaction will secure additional investment in Specific Environments Limited’s operations and will support the wider group’s success in new markets.

Peter Saunders, Managing Director of Specific Environments Limited, will continue to lead the UK-based business alongside the existing management team.

Corporate Partner Maung Aye led the Mackrell team and was supported by Senior Associate Rob Watson (Corporate), Associate Harriet Jones (Corporate) and Associate Joanna Alexiou (Employment).

Peter Saunders, commented: “We are thrilled to be partnering with Angstrom and ASGARD and continuing our momentum following this exceptional year of growth. We believe this partnership will help us meet the growing demand from our customers and enable us to work with larger organisations in delivering fully customizable and turnkey cleanrooms. I believe the combined company is poised for significant growth as it continues to expand its global footprint.”

Maung Aye commented: “We are glad to have supported Peter in this strategic acquisition and I wish the business continued success for the future.

This deal is part of an ongoing trend in the UK, where overseas firms see great value in acquiring and working with British firms to extend their services and products by breaking into new markets.”
