Whitehouse Industries announces latest acquisition
Whitehouse Industries, which has announced a string of acquisitions over the past few months as part of its growth strategy to consolidate services in the manufacturing sector, has now added Birmingham-based Fixings Plus to the company.
Founded in 2004 Fixings Plus is a major supplier of fixings, fasteners and complementary products to the construction industry. Based in central Birmingham it has been involved in recent projects such as the Midland Metro and the Commonwealth Village in Birmingham.
Stuart Whitehouse, managing director at Whitehouse Industries, said: “I am delighted to be adding Fixings Plus to the group. Fixings Plus is an excellent business, with great staff and is a strong strategic fit providing us with enhanced scale in our core business areas.
“It is a well known company in the Midlands and has been involved in most, if not all the major building projects in the Birmingham area.”
Russell Fincham, managing director of Fixings Plus, said: “What really appealed about Whitehouse Industries is that the business will still be run as a family company whilst sharing many of the same cultural values of quality, customer-focus and industry expertise.
“These qualities will ensure that Fixings Plus and Whitehouse Industries will be a great success moving forward. The added investment Whitehouse Industries can provide will enable the business to continue to grow in the future.”
Birmingham-based distributor Nutters Fastenings and Coventry-Based Bailey and Wade and Anchor Inserts have also been acquired by Whitehouse in the last year.
Matthew Guest from Springboard CF advised Whitehouse Industries on the acquisition.
