Pitmans acts on Westcoast’s acquisition of Art Systems Holdings Ltd

May 2016

Pitmans LLP has acted on behalf of its longstanding client, Westcoast (Holdings) Limited on its acquisition of Art Systems Holdings Limited.

The transaction was led by Stephanie Perry, assisted by Jasmine Murphy and Oliver Kelly.

Art Systems provides services and solutions to support printing, offering technical consultancy, demonstration services, logistics and pre and post sales engineering to the design, graphics, signage, display and 3D markets.

Art System's product portfolio focuses on large format and latex print and finishing hardware, software, media and supplies. In the last 24 months the company has seen significant success in 3D printing solutions.

Westcoast Managing Director Duncan Forsyth commenting on the transaction said: "This acquisition represents a game-changing opportunity for Westcoast. Art Systems has been a driving force in the development of the wide format sector and is a leader in next generation 3D printing. Both industries are growing hard and fast. Access to Art Systems' technical expertise and range of distribution agreements with vendors like HP and Stratasys will give us a considerable competitive edge."

Stephanie Perry added: “We wish Westcoast and Art Systems all the best for the future, they were a pleasure to work with and the acquisition allows for great future opportunities for both parties.”
