Based in Lisburn, County Down, the Unicorn Group own a number manufacturing companies across multiple industries and distribute products to customers worldwide. The Group is currently going through a continued period of rapid growth, through business acquisitions and increased sales activity.
Planning a company acquisition can be a time consuming and technical process for both parties, which means you need to be confident that the partner you choose to work with is the right one. Unicorn Group's management team have extensive experience in making this process as simple for you as possible.
We will attempt to ensure any company we acquire maintains trading and fulfils existing commitments. We will always place the existing staff at the forefront of our acquisition strategies, making sure that the impact on them and their families is as minimal as possible.
