Sheffield based SMP, a critically important UK business, supplies a wide range of alloy steel, stainless steel and  superalloy products into the nuclear, aerospace and energy sectors with an annualised turnover of  c£70 million. 

Cynergy Business Finance worked closely with the Mutares team and their corporate advisers K3  Advisory to structure the facilities. 

Alex Silk, Head of M&A UK, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Cynergy Business Finance to help fund the bright future of SMP. From the outset, they clearly understood SMP’s key  opportunities and challenges, and how Mutares will be helping. They came to the table with a  pragmatic funding solution, and we have no doubt that they are the right partner to support the  company’s growth.” 

Paul Fraser, Executive Director, Cynergy Business Finance commented, “SMP has a firm presence  in the Yorkshire area and beyond, given its impressive export track record. The acquisition with  Mutares clearly demonstrates how strategically important SMP is within the sector and on an  international scale. We look forward to working with both SMP and Mutares in the future.
