Wernick says acquisition will broaden its manufacturing capability
Modular construction specialist, Wernick, says its acquisition of modular manufacturer and hire firm, AVDanzer, will give it additional manufacturing capabilities and increase its fleet, with more than 2,000 additional cabins and modular bays.
Manchester-based AVDanzer, also known as Danzer, supplies ‘high-quality modular buildings for sale or for hire’, and has a long history of catering to some of the UK’s major infrastructure and development projects, including the London Power Tunnels Project, and the nuclear power station at Hinkley Point in Somerset. In addition, it provides buildings for hospitals, schools, offices, laboratories, sports facilities, ‘and more’.
Following the acquisition, Danzer will continue to operate as usual from its sites in Manchester and Langley Mill. The manufacturing of anti-vandal currently based at Langley Mill will continue trading as AVDanzer, while its Brentwood depot will become a part of Wernick’s depots in Essex and Kent.
Wernick Group Chairman, David Wernick, said : “We have strong admiration for Danzer’s manufacturing capability and products, and after initial discussion it quickly became apparent that both family-owned businesses share the same values of excellent customer service, outstanding product quality, focus on safety, and keeping things simple. We are delighted to welcome the Danzer team to the family, and look forward to sharing ideas and growing the business further.”
Director at AVDanzer, Dan Holloway, added: “We pride ourselves on being agile and innovative to adapt to new market conditions; the COVID pandemic has really driven the demand for high-quality, innovative accommodation and offices, and our team has kept us at the forefront of developments in our sector. We are pleased to join forces with a business with a similar history and ethos. With the combination of Wernick and our team of experts, we are confident this transaction will boost our capabilities to offer even more flexible solutions to both new and long-standing clients.”
