Cairngorm Capital Case Studies
Sentry Fire Safety Group is a specialist manufacturer of timber fire and security door-sets for the social housing, public sector, commercial and residential markets. Operating nationally from two manufacturing facilities in Doncaster and Birmingham, Sentry Fire Safety Group has established a strong reputation for manufacturing products that meet the most rigorous quality and fire certification standards.
We have invested in the Sentry Fire Safety Group to ensure that the company is well equipped to respond to regulatory change and increased market demand, substantially expanding manufacturing capacity and extending geographic distribution.
Sentry Fire Safety Group’s management team has received strategic and operational support from an experienced Cairngorm Capital Executive Chairman. Our operational experts have also helped strengthen sales, marketing, and brand awareness to drive transformational growth. Cairngorm Capital supported the acquisition of E & S W Knowles by Sentry Fire Safety Group in August 2022, expanding into the education, health care and student accommodation fire-door markets.
Cairngorm Capital’s investment, from its second fund Cairngorm Capital Partners II LP, is its first in the fire protection sector and combines specialist sector operational expertise with financial support from Cairngorm Capital.
