Wincanton looks for further acquisitions

Wincanton is looking at further acquisitions following the announcement last week that it was buying the container logistics business of Hanbury Davies. In its intereim management statement it said: “A number of further potential acquisition targets remain under review in both the UK & Ireland and Mainland Europe.”

The group said it was encouraged by both the sustained momentum of the UK & Ireland business and the early results of increased investment in marketing and business development initiatives in mainland Europe.

“We continue to anticipate that the results for the full year to 31 March 2008 will be in line with our expectations.”
