BOFA International is a world leader in fume extraction and filtration. From its headquarters in Poole, Dorset, it specialises in the design, development and manufacture of fume and dust extraction systems across a range of applications and sectors including laser, electronics, mechanical engineering, printing and 3D printing, pharmaceutical and dental. Its clients include world-leading companies such as such as ASM Pacific Technology, Videojet Technologies, Roland and Markem-Imaje.
LDC backed a management buyout in August 2015 to support its international growth and product development, and during the three-year partnership BOFA almost doubled its revenues due to the continued investment in the company’s infrastructure to support the businesses’ global growth strategy. It opened its first European on-the-ground presence with an office in Hamburg, Germany and invested in its US-based operation in Illinois, which has since delivered 23% year-on-year growth.
When LDC sold its stake to the NYSE-listed Donaldson Company in September 2018, around 90% of BOFA’s revenues were to export markets in the US, Europe, Africa, Middle East and Asia.
