Tasman Building Products
Archer Capital initiated and co-led the management buyout of Tasman Building Products Limited, formerly the Carter Holt Harvey Building Products Group, in April 1998. On acquisition, Tasman’s core businesses included the manufacture and distribution of insulation products in Australia and New Zealand; the production of steel roof tiles in New Zealand and the USA; the manufacturer and distributor of stainless steel sinks in Australia; and the production and installation of access flooring for the Australian commercial building market.
In November 2001, Archer acquired the shareholding of its largest co-investor who required an exit at that time. Tasman was sold to Fletcher Building Products in September 2003.
