We are pleased to announce our acquisition of McCann Chemicals as part of our strategy for growth and diversification.
The acquisition includes subsidiary companies Hunter Chemicals and McCann Food and Nutrition and is our third acquisition since 2015.
McCann’s portfolio of organic and inorganic chemicals will complement our existing offering from our five divisions – Functional, Innovation, Food and Beverage, Metal Surface Treatment, Life Science and Surfactants – and support our plans to strengthen Airedale Group’s market position.
Chris Chadwick, managing director of Airedale Group, states: “McCann Chemicals holds similar values to us and their focus on excellent customer service reflects our own ethos. They have built a strong reputation for quality products which complements our portfolio perfectly and a history of sourcing commodity and specialty products from suppliers all over the world.
“This is a fantastic way to celebrate our 50th anniversary and we’re excited that McCann Chemicals will be joining Airedale Group as we continue our journey to grow, diversify and cement our position as a leading force in the UK chemical industry.”
Both businesses will continue to operate independently under the Airedale Group brand and service for all their customers will continue without disruption.
McCann Chemicals managing director, Les Horrobin, adds: “This development will provide a great platform for continued organic growth for both companies, introducing access to new assets, infrastructure and capabilities and we’re excited to be part of Airedale Group’s ambitious plans for the future.”
