Electra Partners acquires Sentinel Performance Solutions

Private equity firm Electra Partners has acquired Sentinel Performance Solutions for £43m from The Riverside Company.

Based in Runcorn, Cheshire, Sentinel supplies treatment products to improve the performance and efficiency of residential heating and hot-water systems.

Its biodegradable products are said to protect heating systems against limescale and corrosion, and remove sludge and flux, improving energy and increasing system lifespan.

Formerly part of GE, Sentinel was bought out in 2005 by private equity firm The Riverside Company.
