21 Aug Grip UK Ltd (trades as The Climbing Hangar)
Drystone Strategy Partners provided commercial due diligence and strategy support for NVM Private Equity’s investment in Grip UK Ltd.
Grip UK Ltd, which trades as ‘The Climbing Hangar’, is a leading indoor-climbing group which specialises in bouldering walls. One of only four companies to operate three or more indoor walls, The Climbing Hangar are now set to expand their offering to under-served regions of the UK, as well as augment their retail and F&B capabilities.
Drystone supported the deal through market expert and customer referencing and market and competitor insight, whilst identifying and making operational recommendations on future expansion strategy, both geographically and through adjacent/ supporting offerings. Overseas markets were examined, both as an exploration of potential competition and also for examples of best-practice.
The project built upon Drystone’s Leisure, Consumer and Family Entertainment sector experience, and wide-ranging connections in these areas.
The Drystone team was led by Chris Winslet. For further information, or if you are working in a similar sector, please contact us:
