Pipe manufacturer expands with acquisition
Naylor Drainage has completed the acquisition of Tuffpipes Ltd, a Burnley-based manufacturer of PVC pipes for the utility industries, for an undisclosed sum. The company has over £2m turnover and 11 employees.
Naylor Drainage is a manufacturer of clay and plastic pipes for the construction and infrastructure sectors, with factories in Cawthorne near Barnsley and Methil in Scotland; it is a subsidiary of Naylor Industries plc, a fourth-generation family business, which has a £70m turnover and some 420 employees.
Naylor Group Chief Executive Edward Naylor said: “Tuffpipes is a great fit with our business and allows us to offer our customers a broader range of PVC as well as Polyethylene ducting products. We’re looking forward to working with Neil and Amanda to maximise the potential of the Tuffpipes business.”
For the remainder of this year, Tuffpipes will operate as a standalone subsidiary of Naylor Drainage, with manufacturing continuing on the company’s Burnley site. Tuffpipes’ Neil and Amanda Tuff will remain with the business and oversee its integration into the Naylor Group.
