Howdens has acquired Sheridan Fabrications Ltd. Sheridan provides an end-to-end service to customers for the manufacture, fabrication, laser templating and installation of premium solid surface worktops. The business employs about 200 people at its manufacturing facility in Normanton, West Yorkshire.
The acquisition will support Howdens’ trade only model and expansion into the higher priced kitchen segment. Sheridan has a 25-year track record in the solid surface business and the acquisition will further increase Howdens’ in-house manufacturing capacity.
Andrew Livingston, CEO of Howdens, said: “The acquisition of Sheridan gives us significant additional capacity and experience in the solid surface business. We have worked closely with Sheridan for many years and we are delighted to welcome them to Howdens. They are a trusted partner and great fit with our existing capabilities and we are excited about the significant growth opportunities that lie ahead.”
