The Business

Hanmere is a manufacturer of recyclable polythene packaging products which are supplied into a number of end markets including food manufacturing and agriculture. The Company focuses on engineering-led bespoke production, high service levels and short runs offering customers manufacturing flexibility.


The Deal

Chiltern backed the incumbent management team of Glen Morris (Managing Director) and Mushtaq Khan (Works Director) to acquire Hanmere from a family trust.

“Hanmere had been in family ownership for over 30 years and was stifled as a result, Chiltern backed us and our plan and have supported us to unlock the company’s potential. They challenge and support in equal measure.”

Glen Morris, MD, Hanmere

The Plan

Hanmere is a stable, cash generative, specialist provider of polythene packaging products, supplying customers that largely operate in non-cyclical and food related markets. Chiltern will support the team in delivering planned initiatives across operational improvement/lean manufacturing, procurement and a more rigorous approach to KPI reporting and monitoring.
