Adler & Allan acquires AMW Contractors
Acting on behalf of AMW Contractors (AMW) and its shareholders of Cumbria, England, the Manchester office of global sales specialist, Benchmark International, successfully facilitated the sale of AMW Contractors to Adler & Allan for an undisclosed amount.
With over 21 years experience AMW (http://www.amwcontractors.com/) provides environmental incident and remediation services and specializing in 24/7 emergency spill response.
Having worked with AMW over a number of years, the acquirer Adler & Allan, fully understood the company’s strengths. Commenting on the acquisition, Mark Calvert, Managing Director of Adler & Allan stated “There are many synergies between the two companies and they have an excellent reputation. This is a very exciting opportunity to strengthen our regional presence and we welcome their team on board.”
The Benchmark Factor
AMW’s shareholders highlighted Essex based Adler and Allan as a strong candidate very early in the process and wanted Benchmark to approach the company with the offering and to handle negotiations. Following detailed sector analysis a thorough business intelligence report was produced which yielded a further number of potential buyers which allowed us to create a competitive environment and optimum deal value.
The marketing process generated a great deal of interest in the opportunity and coupled with Benchmark’s negotiating skills allowed the deal with the key buyer to be concluded within 5 months of active marketing.
