Lincolnshire company announce acquisition of Yorkshire manufacturer

Lincolnshire company Fen-Bay Services Ltd has announced its recent acquisition of Yorkshire-based manufacturer Transdek UK Ltd.

As one of the leading providers of loading bay equipment, industrial doors, gates and barriers throughout the UK and Ireland, Fen-Bay’s acquisition will see Transdek work side-by-side under the Fen-Bay Group umbrella, and will generate a combined workforce of 180 employees and a £20 million turnover.

The group is committed to strong sustained growth, with a stated focus on increasing its UK manufacturing base and an eye on potential future acquisitions.

Founded in 1997, Transdek has developed a reputation as a leading innovator in the logistics sector.

The company manufactures a unique range of surface-mounted, modular loading bay equipment at its South Yorkshire-based production plant.

Fen-Bay Group Managing Director Carl Sedlan said: “The acquisition of Transdek helps us move further towards our goal of becoming a major UK-based manufacturing business in our sector.

“We see Transdek as a perfect fit for our range of products and services, and this allows us to provide a total product and service portfolio for the industry.

“We were particularly attracted to Transdek’s engineering and innovation capabilities, which dovetail with Fen-Bay’s strength in servicing and project management.

“We’ve built a reputation as a market-leader in 24/7 maintenance, based on our nationwide network of 60 Fen-Bay service engineers and investment in the latest servicing technology.

“This superb resource will also support Transdek’s products and customers moving forwards.”

Leon Butler, Managing Director at Transdek said: “There are great synergies between the two companies, and we’re excited about the opportunities for growth and for increased productivity and employment at our Harworth factory.

“Transdek and Fen-Bay both developed excellent customer relations over the years, and have a major focus on providing the best products, services and after sales support for each unique application.”
