Vialex is delighted to have advised Bruce Wishart, the founder of Empteezy in a sale to an MBO, backed by Chiltern Capital.

Empteezy is a Livingston-based designer, manufacturer and distributor of industrial safety products and solutions, established by Mr. Wishart more than 30 years ago.

The Vialex team was led by Senior Legal Director Andy Lowe, with assistance from Legal Director Morag Waller, and Legal Advisers Scott Paterson and Alex Spence. Property support was provided by Senior Legal Director and Head of Real Estate, Katie Corrigan, and Senior Legal Adviser Eloise Robb.

Vialex CEO Keith Anderson commented  “Bruce Wishart has built an impressive business with an international reach, and I am sure it has a great future under its new ownership.

“It is a privilege to be involved in a Scottish manufacturing success story and to work alongside James Rodger (Aequitas) and Bruce to achieve an exciting outcome for all concerned.”
