Warrington's Morris & Spottiswood acquires Cumbrian maintenance firm
North West contractor Morris & Spottiswood has acquired Cumbrian maintenance specialist LLED Construction into its maintenance division, for an undisclosed sum.
The Warrington fit-out firm, which has a reported turnover of £88m, bought-out founding owner Dee Addison, who will continue his role as the principal of LLED Construction.
All those employed by LLED are set to be retained.
Jon Dunwell, Morris & Spottiswood UK Group MD, said: We have worked with LLED Construction for more than 15 years and they have been a key partner throughout this period.
“This gives us confidence in the acquisition as we have built a strong relationship centred around trust. LLED have been involved in many of our projects including both reactive and planned maintenance works for clients around the Scottish border territory and North of England.
“LLED has a first class reputation in the industry for its reliability, accuracy, speed, quality of service and professionalism. The firm benefits from an excellent track record for developing and delivering for its clients including Weatherspoon’s, Heineken, Spar and Edinburgh Woollen Mill.
“A key part of the transaction will also see us retaining Dee Addison who has been the driving force behind LLED Construction’s success since day one. Dee will be bringing considerable knowledge and experience which will be greatly valued within Morris & Spottiswood’s maintenance department.”
Mr Addison added: “We have worked in partnership with Morris & Spottiswood for many years and I believe the firm is ideally placed to take ownership of LLED Construction.
“One of LLED Construction’s greatest assets is its highly experienced workforce which has played an instrumental role in making the business the success it is today.
“They will all be retained under the new ownership joining forces an equally talented and driven workforce at Morris & Spottiswood.
“We are of course indebted to our loyal client base who will now benefit from even greater resource from across the broader M&S group. We are revelling in the prospect of playing an integral role in the group’s ambitious expansion plans.”
