Mobeus Equity Partners invested £2.9m of growth capital into Buster and Punch, a London based interiors brand.

THE BUSINESS

Buster and Punch was founded in 2012 by architect and industrial designer Massimo Buster Minale.  The business was originally known for its industrial-inspired lighting range and its classic Buster bulb.  It has expanded its product offering to include electrical goods, hardware, furniture and accessories. 

Buster and Punch’s products are now sold in over 50 countries, both directly to end-consumers, designers and architects, and through well-known retailers including John Lewis, Heal’s and Harrods.  Its work is inspired by London’s fashion and music scenes and it has set itself a challenge to transform all those ordinary everyday fittings in your home into the most extraordinary ‘must-haves’.

THE DEAL

Self-funded to date, this was the company’s first external fundraising.  Mobeus invested £2.9m to accelerate its growth prospects.

THE PLAN

Mobeus’s investment will be used to grow the brand internationally notably in North America.  It will also extend the brand by broadening its product range.   The funding will allow the business to invest in stock, marketing, system improvements and in building the team.

THE PEOPLE

Greg Blin led the deal for Mobeus and will join the board.
