Pitcher Partners advises on successful sale of Australian business to global manufacturer

May 16, 2019

Pitcher Partners Melbourne recently advised the shareholders of Wilson & Bradley, one of Australia’s premier cabinetry hardware distributors, on its cross-border sale to Austrian-headquartered Julius Blum GmbH, a global leader in the manufacture of cabinetry hardware. Pitcher Partners provided specialist M&A advice throughout the entire sales process.

“We thoroughly enjoyed working with the owners of Wilson & Bradley on this transaction, and are excited to see what its management can achieve with the backing of Blum,” said James Beaumont, Partner of our Melbourne firm.

Wilson & Bradley have been distributing and supplying kitchen and cabinet hardware to the building industry for over 40 years.  The second generation of the Wilson Family employ over 90 people nationally and have built the business into a powerhouse supplying the renovation market.

“We engaged Pitcher Partners to lead us through the sale process. What impressed us about Pitcher Partners was their seamless teamwork and one firm approach. We engaged with several partners and staff of Pitcher Partners throughout the sales process and the quality of service and technical expertise was consistent and of the highest quality. This ultimately helped achieve an exceptional outcome for our family.”

Wilson & Bradley’s extensive Australian distribution network provides Blum with vertical integration that will allow it to consolidate its strong position in the Australian marketplace.
