Why we invested

Focus has achieved strong organic growth by providing cost-effective, integrated solutions across a wide range of products, coupled with service excellence.  It has also acquired and integrated eight businesses over the past two years to expand its talent pool, build scale and enhance its product range.  This was an opportunity for Bowmark to support the company in accelerating its organic and acquisition-led growth strategy.

The story so far

Focus is continuing its successful acquisition programme, with £150 million of additional funding made available at the time of the transaction, as well as further investing in its sales and service capabilities to build on its impressive record of growth.
