Salford-based furniture installation specialist First Install has been acquired by Ipswich-based Apex Joinery.
As part of the acquisition, which was completed for an undisclosed sum, will see both businesses combine, creating a £5m turnover group with a team of over 50 employees.
Following the deal, the business has lofty plans to grow turnover to exceed £5m over the next 12 months, as well as expand its workforce further and client base.
Mike McVey has been appointed as head of sales and operations and said: “In addition to being a mutually beneficial partnership, both combined businesses are committed to further growth and job creation and plan to bring additional complementary businesses on board.
“By joining forces, we have extended our geographical capabilities and established a new multimillion-pound nationwide operator with the shared aim of becoming the first choice for the design, manufacture and installation of beautiful interior fit-outs along with furniture and retail display installation, across a range of different industry sectors.”
