ARC Building Solutions

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.

ARC was seeking a new investor capable of providing the necessary finance and support to propel the business forward as they transition to a new factory, introduce new products, and expand across the UK.

Enter Newable Capital. Newable Capital specializes in providing investment to assist profitable, well-established UK SMEs through the succession journey.

The investment from Newable Capital aligns with a strategic move to Gildersome Spur, doubling the capacity of the previous facility. This expansion allows for significant enhancements in production processes to effectively meet the growing demand for products.

Beyond financial support, Newable will play a crucial role in supporting the business across key functions, including IT systems and automation, HR, finance, and marketing.
