Criteria

We make multiple acquisitions within our chosen sectors. We seek to acquire companies with a strong customer base and a defensible position, making £0.5 – £2m in pre-tax profits. We can go below or above these thresholds for the right opportunities. We are an independent group of operator-acquirors, backed by a global investment fund.

What They Say

Jag Express

We were looking for a partner who not only understood why we achieved success over the last 20 years but also who cared about the team and the business that we have built. We’ve worked hard to develop a strong customer base in the local area, who will still be dealing with the same team delivering an exceptional service and will also benefit from Viso’s extended network as they continue to grow. I have been impressed with how Viso have conducted themselves from the first contact until the final completion day. They have been fair, open and professional throughout. Viso went out of their way to make the process as pain-free as possible for us as the selling shareholders.

A Really Cool
Company

The ARCC team are very excited about this next step in the evolution of our business. A partnership with Viso Logistics gives us the best of both worlds – we retain our company values, team and everything that makes us unique, but we also get to leverage off some excellent knowledge both inside and out of the logistics sector. “Ultimately, this means that our loyal customers continue to get the same care and attention they have always had. What’s great is that they will now have some extras to help elevate their experience with us, such as access to an expanded network.

Our Approach

Careful Owner

  • We are not a large corporate who will impose its processes, people and culture on its acquisitions
  • Nor are we a private equity firms with impatient backers looking for short term gains or a ‘quick flip’. We are in this for the long term

Preserving the ‘Magic Sauce’

  • We keep the same teams, culture and processes in place that made the business successful in the first place
  • Tech and AI help to make processes more efficient. But where customer interactions are concerned, we believe that offering the personal touch is key

Smooth Sale Process

  • We understand that selling a business that has been part of an owner’s life for so long can be stressful
  • We minimise the stress by focusing our due diligence just on the critical areas, which in turn helps us reach completion more quickly

Creating Real Value

  • We provide our portfolio companies best-in-class Sales & Marketing, great Tech, and a hyper-efficient Finance function
  • We offer customers access to a growing national network with extensive expertise
  • We empower our people by sharing best practice and resources across our portfolio
