Denny Brothers Group’s Move To Employee Ownership

Birketts has advised Denny Brothers Group on a move to employee ownership.

The transaction has seen the independent business remodel to become majority owned by an Employee Ownership Trust (EOT) and join the growing number of employee-owned companies across the UK in the process.
Family-owned company, Denny Bros, was founded in 1945 and has supplied bespoke print based solutions including digital, flexographic and lithographic print labels, to its broad client base for over 76 years. With an employee cohort of 200, Denny Bros have provided an innovative, high quality printing offering to clients across the pharmaceutical, food, consumer product and agrochemical sectors for decades. Owned by second generation family members Barry, Graham and Andrew Denny, the business remains a pioneer in the label making industry.
