Benchmark International Facilitated the Sale Between Oracle Drive Systems And Veruth Holdings

MANCHESTER, U.K. - Nov. 13, 2020 - PRLog -- Benchmark International is delighted to announce the sale of leading variable speed drive and control systems integrator, Oracle Drive Systems, to Veruth Holdings, owner of Europa Components plc and other companies, through sell-side advisers Benchmark International and Primas.

Veruth, a second-generation family holding company, has a policy of long-term development and growth for the companies it is involved with. It is delighted that John Mullins, founder of Oracle, is remaining as Sales Director.

Oracle will continue to build on its 16 years of experience and expertise with many blue-chip companies now with the backing to expand. Already in the last month new offices have been opened in Billingham in the North East of England, adding to the Batley unit in West Yorkshire, as well as taking on more project engineers and support staff to handle the new work the company is being awarded.

David Sheridan, Chairman of Veruth, said: "We see in Oracle and John Mullins a very successful business with a reputation of giving its clients the highest service and we are delighted to now be working with John to take the company further forward."

John Mullins said: "In Veruth we have found a partner with similar attitudes to us and with a long track record of taking companies successfully forward. This will be of great benefit to our customers, staff and Oracle Drive Systems."

Alex Forshaw, Associate Director at Benchmark International, commented: "Benchmark International project managed this deal through to completion, negotiating all aspects of the transaction which ultimately secured a good deal for John, who was very happy with the end result. It was a pleasure working with him and I'm pleased to have reached a conclusion that has enabled him to de-risk and as well as providing the company with a strategic partner in which to take the company through its next stages of growth."

On behalf of everyone at Benchmark International, we would like to wish both parties the very best for the future.
