BGF invested in Molecular Products Group, a family-owned manufacturer of advanced chemistry-based products specialising in breathable gases, in September 2014.
During BGF’s investment, the business moved into a new facility in Harlow, invested in new plant and equipment in both the UK and US and accelerated its global expansion – being commissioned by NASA to design and build an emergency oxygen system for the International Space Station.
In early 2017, the business was acquired by Arlington Capital Partners, a Washington, DC – based private equity firm.
