Cygnia

Cygnia is a specialist tech-enabled omni-channel logistics provider that offers customers a fully managed and bespoke, end-to-end solution for all of their logistics requirements. Sovereign is working with the management team to develop the business further as it meets the increasing demand for its specialist services.

Investment Background

Cygnia (formerly Dalepak) had grown rapidly and after 25 years the founders decided it was time to fully step away from the company. As a family firm, it was of particular importance to them that they found a buyer that would not just recognise the quality of their business, but also understand the importance of the ethos and values which they had worked to create and instil.

In addition, they needed to address their succession planning considerations. Just three months after meeting Sovereign for the first time, the transaction was completed.

Value Creation

  • The management team combines existing operational expertise with external sector talent.
  • The business has deployed new systems to enable greater insight and deliver greater process efficiency.
  • Cygnia has enhanced the overall quality of its operational management team to deliver the ability to scale more rapidly.
  • The business has rebranded in order to reflect the premium quality of the service provided and to differentiate its position in the market.

The Story So Far

Cygnia offers customers a fully managed and bespoke, end-to-end omni-channel solution for all of their logistics requirements. These include integrated warehouse solutions, contract packing, value added production services and carrier management. The business utilises a workforce of over 400, providing their services from over half a million square feet of warehousing space across four sites in Northampton. 

Sovereign is working with the management team to develop the business further as it meets the increasing demand for its specialist outsourcing services.
