The completion took place on March 31 and follows an earlier announcement about the acquisition agreement in February.

As part of the deal, Gill & Robinson (part of the Kullik Group), has taken over the treatment facility and will continue to supply the Rowlinson customers through the existing operations from the Port of Sheerness, Kent.

The new business will work closely with the current Goole operation and trade under the name Kullik Timber. Richard Smith, Lee Patterson and Fiona Gerrard have transferred over to the new business.

“Gill & Robinson and Rowlinson Timber combined have over 200 years’ experience in the industry and the Rowlinson Group look forward to supporting Gill & Robinson in their continued success building on this heritage,” said Lawrence Webster, managing director of Gill & Robinson.
