BGF invested in Molecular Products Group (MPG), a manufacturer of advanced chemistry-based products specialising in breathable gases, in September 2014.
The funding was used by the family-owned business to move into a new facility in Harlow, invest in new plant and equipment in both the UK and US and accelerate its global expansion. MPG and BGF successfully exited the business in January 2017, generating a return for all shareholders.
