Browne Jacobson advises LDC on investment in performance doorset specialist IDSL

UK & Ireland law firm Browne Jacobson has advised private equity investor LDC on its investment in Integrated Doorset Solutions Limited Group (IDSL), a leading performance doorset specialist.

With this investment, LDC will partner with IDSL’s existing management team, led by Founder and Managing Director Ash Malhan, to support its ongoing growth strategy. The transaction will help IDSL to target further organic growth and make acquisitions in a highly fragmented market.

Founded in 2015 and based in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, IDSL manufactures specialist performance doorsets, such as fire and security doors, for use in buildings including hospitals, schools, student accommodation, commercial and residential properties. IDSL has the widest range of performance door intellectual property in the market, that the business continues to invest in. This includes ownership of leading brands such as Leaderflush Shapland and Timbmet Door Solutions Limited (TDSL).

The Browne Jacobson team was led by Partner Mark Hughes, and included Partners Sandra Wong and Shaun McCabe, alongside Associates Dina Hansotia, Jack Milnthorpe and Olivia Barrow. 

Mark Hughes, Partner at Browne Jacobson, said:

“Our private equity team at Browne Jacobson is proud to have played a role in this exciting investment, and big congratulations to LDC and IDSL on their successful partnership. It was a pleasure working again with LDC and we look forward to seeing the team support the continued growth of IDSL.”

David Bains, Partner and Head of LDC in the East Midlands and East of England, said:

“IDSL is a leader in providing performance doorsets that are critical to its customer base, and the regular inspections and maintenance that keep their users safe. Ash and the business’ management team are highly experienced and committed, and we’ve built a strong, longstanding relationship with them over the last few years. With the expertise of the team and the opportunities in the market to grow through making complementary acquisitions, there’s no reason IDSL can’t keep going from strength to strength.”
