Forward advise the shareholders of FG Curtis on business sale

Forward is delighted to have advised the shareholders of FG Curtis plc on its sale to Medication Packaging Holdco Limited, the parent of Medica Packaging Limited, and a portfolio company of Harwood Private Equity.


Based in Redhill, Surrey, FG Curtis specialises in the manufacture of folding cartons for the cosmetics and beauty markets. This successful business is a market leader in supplying sustainable packaging, supported by a strong ethos of environmental excellence achieved through conventional manufacturing methods and using the latest sustainable materials and technology.


After 80 years in the ownership of the Curtis family and its management, the shareholders were looking to find the right partner to take the business forward, while providing stability for its employees and customers. Combining with Medica Packaging, backed by Harwood, the new group brings together two long established British carton companies to forge a bright future.


F.G. Curtis will continue to be led by the current management team, headed up by James Williams, Managing Director, Ben Curtis, Commercial Director and Steve Mallet, Sales Director.
Forward acted as lead advisor to the FG Curtis shareholders, guiding them through the process from start to finish, ensuring the deal worked for all parties.
