1 minute read

Oxford accounting firm Shaw Gibbs has advised UK traffic management equipment supplier Acklea Ltd in its acquistion by specialist vehicle hire and management company, SHB Hire Ltd.

Clifford Brown, Head of Corporate Finance at Shaw Gibbs, supported Acklea’s shareholders throughout the entire process, offering advice on all aspects of the transaction, including commercial issues and tax advice.

Commenting on the work of Shaw Gibbs, Acklea Director Martin Potter said: “Clifford and his team were a constant help throughout the transaction. We are confident that we have found a buyer who shares our values and commitments and will help benefit our current and future customers.”

Based in Calne, Wiltshire, Acklea designs and builds traffic management vehicles that have a strong reputation for operator safety, high performance and ease of use. These characteristics fit well with SHB’s longer term strategy and vision to be the UK’s leading partner of choice for equipment to the Highways Maintenance and Infrastructure market.

Fellow Director, David Phizacklea added: “Acklea has been at the forefront of the UK Traffic Management Vehicle Industry with our vehicle designs and equipment and we are delighted to be able to grow our business with the support of a national company that is in a position to invest and grow the business and offer broad opportunities for our employees. SHB was a perfect fit for our company values and vision for the future.”
