Barry Grewcock & Sons

Management Buy Out

Watersheds is pleased to announce the partial management buy out of Barry Grewcock and Sons Ltd, based in Corby, Northamptonshire; one of the UK's leading dismantlers and recyclers of commercial truck parts.

Founded in 1993, the company is one of the UK’s leading licensed dismantlers and recyclers of commercial truck parts, offering a wide range of new, used and reconditioned DAF parts.

James Harris acquired 50% of the shares of the company in 2011, with a view to growing the business with the existing shareholder at that time. James said, “Whilst we did grow the business over the last six years, our goals and expectations as shareholders grew apart.”

James found himself with a deadlocked company with no mechanism to resolve disputes between equal shareholders. He added, “As our relationship as shareholders had broken down, I was not able to negotiate a solution with my fellow shareholders. I knew Richard from past dealings with Watersheds and was confident that he had the character and expertise required to find a solution that worked for both parties.”

Richard Buzzoni, Director of Watersheds said, “I felt flattered when James reached out to us. James had a big problem and it was difficult for him to negotiate as he was immersed in detail and emotion. We were able to approach the problem, on behalf of James, with clarity and professionalism and achieved an outcome that was acceptable to all parties.”

All jobs are secure and the business is poised for growth. James added, “I am now solely responsible for the destiny of the company, which is both daunting and liberating. I hope that Richard and Watersheds can assist me further with my plans for future growth.”
