London calling for acquisition

Have your say

Accountants and lawyers from Sheffield have played a pivotal role in an acquisition involving a plant hire company, based within the M25.

Hart Shaw Corporate Finance from Sheffield and Oxley and Coward Solicitors from Rotherham advised Enfield-based GGH Hire on its acquisition of London-based Hire Mate to create a plant hire business serving the construction and utility industries, with sales in excess of £4.2m.

Corporate finance associate Steve Bell said: “The acquisition of Hire Mate presents an opportunity to extend the products and services provided to a wider client base.

Oxley and Coward commercial partner, Rebecca Stopford, added: “Alike with Hart Shaw we have many clients from the south of England and London who recognise quality, efficient services at a reasonable cost can be obtained in South Yorkshire.”
