The buyout, led by managing director Mike Gahir, finance director Bev Brown, sales director Darren Bedford, and operations director Chris Thain, involves acquiring the complete share capital of the Tewkesbury-based company.

Managing director Mike Gahir said: “We would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to the entire Lakes team for their unwavering support, hard work, and dedication over the years, which has enabled us all to reach this point. Their contributions have been instrumental in making this business the success that it is today.
