Maven Capital Partners
UAP is a leading UK supplier and distributor of high specification door and window hardware. Founded in 1996 by David Jennings, UAP has a track record of delivering growth, both organically and through acquisitions, including Fullex and CitySafe which were both integrated in 2016. UAP has an extensive and market leading portfolio of brands across key product areas such as door lock cylinders, handles, hinges, letter box plates and guards. The business now offers over 3,000 product lines and exports to 25 different countries.
Manchester-based UAP has established a reputation for innovation and safety, with a significant proportion of its product range backed by patents, and British Kite marked and Secured by Design approved meeting the latest security and fire safety regulations. Increasing regulation and the tightening of fire safety standards is driving additional demand for UAP’s certified products as the market responds to regulatory change within the new build and social housing sectors.
