A North Shields business has expanded its presence into the Midlands.
Rosewood Packaging, based on West Chirton North Industrial Estate, has acquired Scott Packaging’s Wolverhampton business for an undisclosed sum.
With the latest acquisition, Rosewood has acquired its fifth manufacturing facility to complement the four sites across Tyneside and takes employee numbers up to 140.
John Lord, group sales director of Rosewood Packaging, said: “We have been aware of the previous George Hill business for years through its reputation for providing high quality products – supported by a first class service.
“Their product range dovetails neatly in with ours in both timber packing cases and crates, and performance corrugated packaging – the business, like Rosewood on Tyneside, is part of the Tri-Wall Europe fabricator network.
“This product range, combined with its highly skilled and experienced workforce, made it a very attractive acquisition for us.
“The purchase aligns with our strategy to expand geographically with a new centre in the Midlands.”
“The site will initially be known as George Hill Rosewood, and we will provide the business with the support needed to assist its growth & to ensure that the site remains one that we are all proud of.
“We worked closely on this deal with Adam Rayner from the corporate team at Muckle LLP, and we would like to thank him, partner Philip Clare, and the rest of the Muckle team for their diligent and professional approach.”
