Alantra has advised Bencis Capital Partners (“Bencis”) and BRB International B.V. (“BRB”) on the strategic majority interest in CSL Silicones Inc. (“CSL”).

Founded 34 years ago and located in Guelph, ON, Canada, CSL has grown leading positions around the globe in Silicone Protective Coatings for High Voltage Insulators. CSL has developed a unique technology know-how in Silicone Elastomeric Coatings which find novel applications in Building & Construction, Anti-Graffiti and Anti-Corrosion. In addition, CSL brings to BRB a solid chemical synthesis and formulating base in North America with ample room for capacity extension to support BRB’s growing business in Americas. CSL will benefit from BRB’s critical size in the Silicone industry. In return, BRB is undergoing a step change in its presence in North America.

Alantra introduced the idea of CSL Silicones Inc. to Bencis as potential add-on acquisition for its portfolio company BRB. Subsequently Alantra acted as M&A advisor on this transaction.
