The Canopy Company acquired by Acme Facilities Group

Benchmark International has advised on the successful sale of The Canopy Company Limited (The Canopy Company) to Acme Facilities Group Limited (Acme Group) for an undisclosed sum.

Based in Burnley, North West England, The Canopy Company was established in 2001 and manufactures high quality stainless steel extraction canopies, predominantly for the catering service industry.  The company also offers specialty and general fabrication services.

On completion of the deal, Sean Routh, Director of The Canopy Company, said, “Despite generating a number of interested parties, Benchmark International found the perfect acquirer within the first month of marketing the company. We were thrilled with their efforts and professionalism, and delighted we found an ideal match to drive the company forwards.”

Benchmark International is delighted for Sean and everyone involved with the two companies on the successful completion of this deal, and we extend our best wishes to all for the future.
