Successful MBO for SLX Group


Successful MBO for SLX Group

Simplex-Turbulo, Lincoln Diesels, Dorman Diesels and STW Engineering (as part of the renamed SLX Group, formerly Simplex Engineering Group) is under new ownership and management after a successful MBO

It is with great pleasure that the new owners announce that the management team at Simplex Engineering has successfully completed an MBO (management buyout) of 100% of the group, including Simplex-Turbulo Co., Lincoln Diesels, Dorman Diesels and STW Engineering (GmbH). The purchase completed on 20th September 2022. Justin Brooking (CEO), Adrian Patterson (Sales and Marketing Director), Matthew Gibson (MD of STC and IT Director), Marcus Poole (Finance Director) and Michael Robinson (MD of LD), are the new owners and management team. 

We would like to thank James and Clare Hogg, for their unparalleled stewardship of the group since 1985, and SKF Marine GmbH, for acting as part owner and principal for as many years.

“We are all very excited with the successful MBO and we thank James, Clare and Thomas Kaiser for their support during the transition over the last six months. We now look to the future with renewed focus, energy and enthusiasm to really supercharge the business to take it to new heights by working closely with our colleagues, our customers and our suppliers.”

Adrian Patterson, Group Sales & Marketing Director

It is business as usual for the trading companies, we look forward to working with renewed endeavour with all our customers, suppliers and colleagues. In an uncertain world, we aim to continue to provide quality, reliability, integrity, and intelligent commerciality to all our partners.
