Metamark UK has expanded its capabilities with the acquisition of industrial markings producer, Fleet Design, which will enable Metamark to access new markets for its self-adhesive materials.
Fleet Design’s products include vehicle conspicuity markings required for highway maintenance compliant vehicle livery, and statutory Chapter 8 vehicle markings.
Metamark chief executive Paul French said: "I'm delighted to have completed this acquisition and to welcome our new colleagues aboard to help Metamark continue innovating and growing. The additional expertise and conversion capabilities we're building into Metamark's business will help us serve the needs of more customers and to deliver our class-leading materials into new markets."
"Metamark's existing customer base has an appetite for specialised conversion output and reflective markings too. As part of the Metamark family, our new division immediately has access to a whole swathe of new customers that may have been difficult to find in the past."
Fleet Design managing director and founder Duncan Richards added: "As an entrepreneur I've always been driven by a vision of seeing something I've created reaching a milestone in its development that takes it forward with the resources it needs to grow and really deliver its potential. That's now happened. I'm thrilled at the idea of what the future holds for all involved, including the customers we've attracted by revolutionising the way reflective markings are made and sold. The acquisition is a great move for Metamark and it looks just as bright from my side of the table too."
Integration of the Fleet design business into Metamark will begin immediately with Metamark offering its customers access to Fleet design products.
