Their technical expertise and attention to detail throughout the process was excellent. Each stage of this complex transaction was explained in terms we could understand and they reassured us throughout. Along with this technical advice we were impressed at how Andrew and his team really understood how we felt about the sale – knowing it was more than just a transaction for us.”

However, what stood out for us the most was the personal and approachable service we received and the genuine interest they had in our business. The advice was open and forthcoming, and we were able to pick up the phone with ease. I trusted them through the whole process and wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Kreston Reeves to others.”

Andrew Griggs, Senior Partner, Kreston Reeves adds: “The Kreston Reeves approach is to treat every client and every transaction personally and with meticulous attention to detail, and in corporate finance transactions that will help smooth the passage of a deal. We were delighted to help Obart Pumps through onto the next stage of the business.”
