Spatial Composites undergoes management buyout
Spatial Composite Solutions, the manufacturer of cabin crew training equipment based in Ras Al Khaimah, has completed a successful management buyout, transitioning ownership of the company from Joe McKeever to Henry Robertson and Marc Van den Broucque.
As a result of the buyout, Robertson, previously Spatial’s chief operations officer, will become managing director. He has been with the company for more than eight years and will ensure service and quality continuity to the company’s airline custoners.
Van den Broucque also assumes the role of Managing Director. He has considerable experience in the professional services industry in the fields of investment banking and management consulting.
Robertson, said: “This announcement is an important milestone for our company. Under Joseph McKeever’s leadership, Spatial has built itself into a globally-recognised leader in cabin crew training equipment. Now is the time to build on this success by doubling-down on our efforts to deliver market-leading innovation whilst continuing to deliver products of the highest possible quality which meet the bespoke requirements of our customers.”
Van den Broucque, Managing Director, added: “Henry and I are tremendously excited to be leading the business as we take the positive values and reputation which Spatial is recognised for to a broader client base. It is our intention to invest significantly in next generation technologies and manufacturing capacity whilst leveraging the significant strength and experience of our existing team in order to build a business that can continue to exceed our clients’ expectations.”
Sir Richard Branson, the founder of the Virgin Group, just one of the many customers that turned to Spatial under the control of Joe McKeever, right. The company has now been the subject of a management buyout.
