Toronto, ON / London, UK – February 01, 2017 – Lynx Equity is excited to announce its expansion to Europe with the acquisition of London, UK’s Signalhome. For over fifteen years, Signalhome has provided warehousing and distribution for some of London’s premiere kitchen and bathroom product retailers including Nicholas Anthony & Bulthaup. The company has long-standing exclusive relationships with its top customers, boasting a record of never having lost an account to a competitor. This can be credited to its high level of personalized service and pricing structures catered to each client’s specific needs. These factors, combined with steady growth over the past several years, and the opportunities presented by changes in London’s housing market, made Signalhome an ideal target for Lynx Equity regardless of any recent economic uncertainly triggered by BREXIT.
“We were immediately attracted to the success that Signalhome has found in a niche market in London. Its experienced and loyal employees have been integral in maintaining industry-leading customer retention rates with many key clients,” commented Lynx Equity President, Brad Nathan.
“My grandfather, Alfred A. Nathan, grew up in East London. I’m so pleased to be going back to my roots, and I can’t think of a better group to take this step with than the fantastic team at Signalhome and our growing UK office,” continued Brad Nathan. The current Signalhome management will stay on for the foreseeable future, ensuring a smooth transition for both the company as well as Lynx Equity’s entry into the European market.
Lynx Equity continues to actively pursue acquisitions from owners looking to retire across North America and Europe.
Located in London, UK, Signalhome provides storage for high-end bathroom and kitchen developers within its 16,000sq.ft. warehouse. It also offers distribution of products to premiere kitchen and bathroom showrooms throughout London and the South East UK via its large fleet of delivery vehicles.
