Based in Leeds and founded in 2008 as a family business and employing 60 staff, ARC has grown to become the market leader in the manufacture and supply of award-winning certified cavity fire barriers to the UK house building and construction markets. ARC works closely with academia at Leeds Beckett University and other stakeholders in the U.K. housebuilding industry to innovate its award winning range of products.

The company operates through national distributors for a variety of major blue-chip companies including Taylor Wimpey and Barratt Homes, where the business has achieved national preferred supplier status.

How we helped

ARC was looking for a new investor who can help provide the finance and support to drive the business forward as they move to a new factory, develop new products and expand across the UK.

This is where Newable Capital came in. Newable Capital provides investment to help profitable, well-established UK SMEs through the succession journey.

The investment by Newable Capital coincides with a factory move to Gildersome Spur, doubling the capacity of the previous facility. This will enable further improvements in production processes to better cope with increased demand for products.

In addition to financial support, Newable will support the business across key business functions, including IT systems and automation, HR, finance and marketing.
