Walford Timber are celebrating the successful acquisition of timber and fencing supplier G&M.B. Manning Ltd. The acquisition brings together two long-term trading partners, Walford Timber having supplied products to Buckinghamshire based ‘Manning’s’ for over 25 years.
With Manning’s owner and Managing Director Christine Dennis wishing to retire and Walford Timber wanting to expand in to that market the acquisition was a perfect opportunity for both companies.
Commenting on the acquisition George Smith, Managing Director of Walford Timber said; “We are hugely excited about the acquisition of Manning’s and the expansion this creates for our business. Chris and her team have built up a fantastic business with an outstanding reputation, and we are looking forward to building on that and bringing together the best of both companies and what they can offer.”
Christine Dennis commented: “Like Walford we are a long established family business and I’m delighted that Walford Timber will be continuing what we have started. We have a fantastic business with great staff and I think there will be many benefits from the two companies coming together. It’s an exciting time for our staff and customers and I couldn’t think of a better fit with so many shared principles and the benefits this will bring.”
