Harlow has announced an exciting new chapter following the acquisition of the business by Silverbaton Holdings.

Silverbaton Holdings Ltd, an entrepreneurial group of investors has acquired Harlow Printing Limited.  Jack Harrison, fourth generation in the family business and who has been with the company for over 15 years, remains the MD. Jack Harrison noted that the focus would very much remain “business as usual,”. Femi Okeya and Emmanuel Lawal will join the business working closely with Jack as Chief Executives bringing in the added benefit of experience in growing businesses. This will help drive Harlow’s continued growth plan in the sector over the coming years.

For Femi and Emmanuel, the acquisition is the end of the search for the right company to invest in. They had heard great things about Harlow and were very excited by the company’s glowing reputation, experience, knowledge, delivery record, and long-serving customer base.

Femi noted that “Harlow is a fantastic business with a great history, an impressive track record for delivery, and a customer-focused culture. We were impressed by the depth of experience in the operations team and felt it was a great place to work. We knew it was the right fit and are delighted to have completed the deal. Our vision for Harlow is long-term and we look forward to working closely with the leadership team and customers to expanding the service and product offering”, he added.

Jack Harrison and Harlow’s executive team will continue to run the business who now employ around 120 people.

Jack commented: “I’m really pleased to embark on this new chapter at Harlow. I’m also excited Femi and Emmanuel and the investment group have acquired the business rather than being taken over by a competitor or a private equity investor. Harlow will continue its customer-focused ethos, supported by ongoing investment”.
