IWS Group, The Industrial Workspace Specialists, has acquired The Rack Group, a provider of pallet racking safety, inspection, repair and maintenance solutions.
IWS Group provides services and supplies to the logistics, warehousing and material handling sectors in the UK, across Europe and beyond. The acquisition will further strengthen its position in core markets, extend the scope of the existing offering and open up opportunities to provide customers with additional product solutions and services.
Established for over 40 years and based in Barnsley, The Rack Group supplies its innovative racking protection products, such as Rack Armour, and its racking inspection, repair and maintenance services to some of the largest brands in retail, warehousing, logistics and material handling.
“We are excited to welcome The Rack Group to the IWS family,” said Jeroen van den Berge, CEO of IWS Group. “The warehousing, logistics and materials handling sectors have seen unprecedented growth due to new shopping behaviours and IWS Group is bringing together businesses built on specialist expertise and customer centricity to serve these sectors with essential products and services.
The addition of The Rack Group provides further opportunity to broaden the scope of services and solutions each of the IWS Group companies can offer their customers. We look forward to a bright, prosperous and successful future together.”
Jenny Charlton, director at The Rack Group, said: “This is an extremely positive development for both organisations, bringing new opportunities to add greater value to customers in terms of product solutions, technical capabilities and enhanced customer service.
