Private fund partners with Orbit Chemicals

By Frankline Sunday | April 26th 2016

Private Equity firm, Catalyst Principal Partners, has signed an investment deal with Kenyan manufacturing firm, Orbit Chemicals, as it moves to widen its portfolio in the country’s lucrative manufacturing sector.

The deal follows approval received from Competition Authority of Kenya last week allowing the capital injection.

“The partnership allows them to focus resources on marketing and distribution to drive faster penetration and growth of their products,” stated Paul Kavuma, CEO of the fund.

Kavuma further stated that Catalyst’s investment will further strengthen Orbit’s product development by addressing local demand for its customised solutions.
