Private equity firm Connection Capital snaps up film and TV designer 4Wood in £9m deal

Film and TV set designer 4Wood has been acquired by private equity firm Connection Capital for £9m.

The Cardiff-based company, which has worked on BBC series Sherlock with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman and Netflix series Sex Education, was founded in 2008 by husband and wife team Scott and Lynsey Fisher.

The couple, who were the firm’s sole shareholders but stepped down in 2019, will receive a multimillion-dollar payout when 4Wood is sold.

Scott Fisher said: “We are incredibly proud and it has been a great pleasure to grow 4Wood from a small family business into the multi-faceted creative business it is today.

Connection Capital’s investment, together with their shared passion and vision for the development of 4Wood, and the talented creative people we are so proud to have, will undoubtedly take 4Wood to the next level.”

Andrew Force, director of 4Wood, said: “This is a really exciting time for the management team and a fantastic opportunity to grow our business with the help of our new supporters.”
