J.W. O’Donovan LLP acted as legal advisors to the shareholders of Demesne Electrical Sales Limited in the sale of the company to OEM International.
The acquisition, which took effect on the 13th of January 2022, sees OEM International acquire Ireland’s leading independent importer and distributor of electrical control, switchgear, energy saving & installation products. Founded in 1977, Demesne Electrical has grown from humble beginnings in a house Dublin’s Robin Hill Road to a HQ facility in Dublin 24 and national distribution centres in Cork and Dungannon. The company’s total revenue is now circa €20 million. OEM International’s President and CEO Jörgen Zahlin is quoted in saying that their company’s ambition is to “further develop and grow the existing Demesne business and to gradually strengthen the customer offering”. Now under new ownership, Demesne Electrical Sales Limited will continue on a path of further innovation and excellence in the electrical industry.
The team at J.W. O’Donovan LLP was led by John Fuller (Partner, Corporate), with assistance from Anne-Marie Linehan (Partner, Property), and David Pearson (Partner, Employment).
