The acquisition dovetails perfectly with our long term strategy and brings exposure into markets for the Hankinson Painting Group in Rail, Storage Tanks, Renewable Energy and Power Generation and new services with a range of specialist services and coatings. They also have a factory facility for the preparation and coating of steel and steel structures which also adds a new dimension to the Group activities with services such as blasting cleaning, pipe linings, pipe wrappings and flame metal spraying.

There are many shared values within the two Organisations including an unrelenting commitment to quality and safety that will long continue. This is another exciting milestone in the development of the Hankinson Painting Group and consolidates our position as one of the Premier Painting Groups in the United Kingdom.
