Customer Testimonials

  • "ACQUIRE BUSINESS SALES dealt with the Sale of our Company. We found them attentive and professional during the process which came to a satisfactory conclusion . We would highly recommend them for any future Business Sales. Thank you for the good work carried out."

    Jose Cancho Marchena & James Harris
    Birmingham Machine Tool Services Limited
  • "From the start, Acquire quickly got to grips with the scale of our business and more importantly our objectives for the sale. You also made very clear proposals on how to identify and approach prospective buyers, which as first (and only) time business sellers, we found extremely reassuring. We liked the fact that you specialise in finding buyers for companies of our size and offered the necessary experience and skills to not only identify, but negotiate with acquirers much larger in size than ourselves. Given our sector, your measures to safeguard our Business from the potential hazards of selling proved extremely valuable."

    Christopher Pratt
    Superclean Services Wothorpe Limited
  • “I’ve worked with Acquire on a number of deals and they are always a pleasure to deal with: approachable and always available. I was impressed by the quality and professionalism of their service throughout this matter, not just in finding a “best fit” buyer, but in managing their clients’ expectations of the selling process and keeping the momentum of the deal going right through to completion.”

    Matt Worsnop
    Partner | BHW Solicitors
  • "Confidentially selling a c.£5m to £10m Speciality Chemicals Manufacturer is no easy task, but working with Acquire simplified the process considerably and added immeasurable value to the overall deal. Considering our sector, it is also remarkable that you kept the sale confidential right up to closing. I believe that in completing this deal to AFCO you have more than delivered on your initial proposal to sell my Company. You sourced me an International acquirer with a global expansion plan, which can only be good news for the future of this 130-year old Business and its loyal employees."

    John Walker
    J&W Whewell Limited
  • "As a manufacturing business approaching £3m turnover we found that Acquire Business Sales were an ideal fit to manage the confidential marketing of our Business. From an initial meeting with their Managing Director, it took only a few weeks to have the Company installed on their portfolio of businesses for sale. I have no hesitation in recommending Acquire to other owners who are looking for a reliable Broker to achieve a 'best-fit' sale of their business."

    Derek Mcintyre
    Kayfoam Limited
  • “I have been very impressed with Acquire Business Sales and in particular their Managing Director Anthony Mitchell who was instrumental in bringing one of our larger deals last autumn to a successful conclusion. Acquire were “on the ball” when it came to personalities and strategy and this really assisted the Seller’s side throughout. Always contactable and ready to give their thoughts on how the Buyer would react to our proposals, Acquire gave us a good insight into the commercial angle, and the Buyer’s mind-set, which ultimately ensured negotiations went smoothly."

    Anneka Traynor
    Corporate Lawyer at KBL Solicitors LLP
  • "I would like to put on record my thanks to the team at Acquire for the high levels of service and professionalism provided at all times during the selling process. I am happy to recommend Acquire at every opportunity and have no hesitation in putting Acquire forward as an expert in the field of Specialist Company Sales."

    Graeme Hawes
    Peterlee Glass Company Limited
  • “When working with Anthony and his team, I have found them sensible, commercial and realistic in what can and cannot be achieved. Buying and selling a business is an emotional experience, and clients need a cool head and a steady pair of hands. Acquire has both attributes, and it is a pleasure to work with them.”

    Julian Bond
    Corporate/Commercial Partner, Glaisyers Solicitors LLP
  • "From the outset we felt confident in Acquire’s ability to professionally represent us in identifying and introducing suitable purchasers for our Business. We also felt that your targeted marketing efforts and service orientated approach enabled us to confidentially explore our market effectively, which resulted in a steady flow of qualified interest from the UK and overseas."

    Roger Hird
    Eurolabs Limited
  • "Having now successfully Sold the Business to Dawson Bowman Ltd we can confirm that Acquire met and indeed exceeded our expectations in terms of service. We especially enjoyed working with both Anthony and Scott who worked to a very high standard and whom we found to be extremely supportive and personable."

    Phil Martin
    MD, Stratton Valves & Engineering Limited
  • "Having experienced in excess of a 12 month period with another business sales company prior to engaging Acquire Business Sales, we have been very aware of the different proactive approach adopted by your company which ultimately resulted in a sale. It has been a pleasure dealing with you and I feel I can wholeheartedly recommend your services to anyone considering the sale of their business. Chris and I will think of you from time to time when we are sunning ourselves on a beach somewhere!"

    Maggie Todd
    Sub Assembly Services Limited
  • "Having worked with Acquire over a number of years, we have found that their responsive, yet pro-active, attitude to clients’ requirements is most refreshing and their no nonsense attitude to handling client expectations most welcome."

    Stephen Jarman
    Corporate Partner, Taylors Solicitors
  • "Whilst accepting that you were retained by the vendor of Sub Assembly Services Ltd, I found Acquire's approach professional, business like and above all swift. Thanks to this we managed to complete our purchase within a month of the initial site visit and offer. Swift and concise negotiations meant that we avoided wasted time and kept the focus and interest in the project high."

    Phil Simmonds
