Talking clearly: private equity and debt in the flat glass industry

Glass processing & finishing Spot On

While the flat glass sector has faced its share of challenges arising from the COVID-19 pandemic, it looks set to benefit from the bounce back being seen in M&A since the end of 2020 that is being largely powered by private equity (PE) and private debt. 


In our latest Spot On exploring the flat glass industry, Valērija Liege, Oaklins’ glass processing & finishing specialist, provides an overview of market trends, looking in particular at the key role played by PE in recent transactions in the sector.

We have witnessed strong private equity interest in both buy and build strategies as well as financing management buy-outs and buy-ins, such as with Euroview Architectural Glass, Thermoglas Niederrhein and Glas Trienes, and Klaasimeister.
