Loading bay equipment provider Fen-Bay Services has acquired Transdek UK for an undisclosed sum.
As a result of the deal Transdek and Fen-Bay Services will now trade under the Fen-Bay Group umbrella, with the combined business employing some 180 people and generating £20 million in turnover.
Fen-Bay Group Managing Director Carl Sedlan said: “We see the acquisition of Transdek as a perfect fit for our range of products and services. Fen-Bay has seen significant growth in the scissor lift and dock leveller markets over the past years and, together with Transdek’s modular lifts and loading systems, we can now provide a total product and service portfolio for the industry.”
Sedlan said that Fen-Bay were particularly attracted to Transdek’s engineering and innovation capabilities, which he believed dovetailed with Fen-Bay’s strength in servicing and project management.
“We’ve built a reputation as a market-leader in 24/7 maintenance, based on our nationwide network of 60 Fen-Bay service engineers and investment in the latest servicing technology. This superb resource will also support Transdek’s products and customers moving forwards.”
Leon Butler, Managing Director at Transdek, said: “There are great synergies between the two companies. We’ve both developed excellent customer relations over the years, and have a major focus on providing the best products, services and after sales support for each unique application.
“The combination of Fen-Bay’s loading bay equipment, scissor lifts, doors and gates, alongside Transdek’s modular lifts, means we can offer a one-stop shop to add value to our customers’ operations.”
