Whittan Group acquires Apex Linvar Limited

Further to the announcement made on 6 November 2015 we are pleased to confirm that the acquisition of Apex Linvar Limited was completed on Friday 22 January 2016, following clearance by the Competition and Markets Authority earlier in the month.

The complementary strengths of the Apex and Whittan businesses will enable the enlarged group to realise the many growth opportunities available in the market, and to improve our combined product and service offer to customers.

As a result of the acquisition there will be some immediate Whittan Group senior management changes. Andrew Butler, currently Chief Executive, becomes Chairman of the Board of the enlarged group and Ian Smith, currently Managing Director of Apex Linvar, becomes Whittan Group Chief Executive.
