The details

Corpacq is an investment business and acquisition vehicle set up by Simon Orange, the brother of Take That star Jason Orange.

Backed by private investors and bank funding, the business was set up in 2006. Corpacq buys standalone owner-managed businesses, providing owners with an exit. It currently holds eight investments and is making £8.7m in pre-tax profits on a total turnover of £68.2m. The company’s current investment portfolio includes several glass-making businesses, a construction firm and a handful of fork lift truck businesses.

“Our targets are successful owner-managed firms or divisions of larger or public companies, with established management teams to whom we can offer support to grow their businesses. It is not our intention to come in and reorganise these firms – they are already well-run by people with experience in their sectors,” says Orange.
