NVM invests in Volumatic.

“The buy-out will allow us to take advantage of significant growth opportunities. We want to develop our product range, increase penetration in existing markets and expand overseas.

Volumatic has several new product innovations and improvements currently under development- and we look forward to working with NVM to bring these to market.”

Colin Amos, Managing Director of Volumatic

NVM has invested £6m to support the management buy-out of Volumatic Limited, from Halma plc. Volumatic is the UK’s leading provider of intelligent cash handling products to the UK and international markets. Cash transactions remain the dominant payment method across the UK and Europe. Volumatic’s products are used globally to count and protect over $1 billion per day.

The company was established in 1972 to pioneer retail security products. 40 years on and the Coventry based business is a leading force in its market; with a widely recognised brand and long-established, blue-chip client base. Its customers include some of the best-known UK retailers, supermarket chains, leisure operators and banks including Wilkinson, Tesco, WH Smith, Lloyds TSB, RBS, Nationwide, McDonalds, Madame Tussauds and Chelsea FC. Volumatic also has a growing reputation across Europe and in the USA.

Volumatic designs, manufactures and services a wide array of products that help companies to count cash, detect forged notes and store cash securely. In 2008 they launched a new product, CounterCache Intelligent (CCi) which combines counting, anti-forgery, storage and software suites for integration with retailer’s systems. There is currently no directly comparable product in the market and management believe it has huge market potential. In 2011 CCi accounted for 45% of Volumatic’s
total revenue.

Volumatic is led by a talented and dedicated management team. They have a deep understanding of their market and customer requirements. This is a highly innovative company with new and existing product development being a key driver for its growth. The funding from NVM will ensure that they continue to be at the forefront of developments in the sector, as well as allowing them to broaden their footprint and capability.
