Suttons Tankers has acquired the trade of Bullard Ltd, which specialises in chemical waste and fuels transport.
The deal sees the equipment, drivers and company’s customers, being managed by Suttons with the company’s founder Simon Bullard remaining in a key account management role.
Michael Cundy, managing director, Suttons Tankers said: “This was a natural evolution with a known player in the market and is beneficial to both parties.
“We already have the largest shared-user chemical fleet in the UK and this acquisition allows us to focus on one of our key strategic sectors for growth.
“Our UK network also adds flexibility and capacity to Bullard’s customers and will deliver improved service and capability.”
Bullard, which is based in Dinnington near Sheffield was founded in 1993. Founder Simon Bullard said: “I’m delighted to have the opportunity to formalise a relationship with a company whose track record of leading customer service and safety is well known in the industry.”
