William Hackett

Established over 130 years ago, William Hackett is a globally recognised market leader in lifting equipment and chain products, providing assembly, testing and certification to products such as slings systems and hoists for use in harsh, safety critical environments.

Having grown revenues at an impressive rate of 17% per annum in the 4 years ended FY23, the shareholders engaged with UNW to identify a partner suited to support the group in its next phase of growth. Following a competitive marketing process, Private Equity firm H2 Equity Partners were selected to partner with the business, acquiring a majority shareholding.

Working closely with the company, its shareholders and the management team to understand their collective objectives, UNW provided a hands-on service advising the shareholders through to a successful completion.
