Bawtry Carbon is one of only three western-world suppliers of carbon cathode products for the aluminium industry, operating from a 56 acre site where it has traded since 1972. Bawtry manufactures consumable carbon-based products for use in aluminium smelting and has an international customer base exporting globally from its facility in Austerfield, Doncaster.
THE IMPACT SO FAR
In October 2019, Enact, agreed to buy the trade and assets of Bawtry Carbon International in an accelerated transaction after its parent company hit financial problems. The investment in Bawtry Carbon was the third completed by Enact Fund II, just four months after closing the second fund at £30 million. With Enact’s support, Bawtry has significantly grown revenues and invested in Research and Development capabilities to bring innovative new products to market to enhance the ESG credentials in the aluminium industry.
