Walford Timber acquires G & MB Manning Ltd17 July 2017
Walford Timber is celebrating the successful acquisition of timber and fencing supplier G & MB Manning Ltd.
The acquisition brings together two long-term trading partners, Walford Timber having supplied products to Buckinghamshire based ‘Manning’s’ for over 25 years.
Walford Timber said the acquisition represented a perfect opportunity for both companies as Manning’s owner and managing director Christine Dennis was wishing to retire and Walford had wanted to expand into that market.
“We are hugely excited about the acquisition of Manning’s and the expansion this creates for our business,” said George Smith, managing director of Walford Timber.
“Chris and her team have built up a fantastic business with an outstanding reputation, and we are looking forward to building on that and bringing together the best of both companies and what they can offer.”
Walford Timber is a third generation family business with its main site located near Ross-on-Wye in Herefordshire, and a further branch in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.
The company manufactures and supplies timber and fencing products including fence panels, gates and garden buildings as well many other outdoor timber products.
G & MB Manning will continue as a sales outlet for these products, as well as the numerous other products it currently supplies.
