Naylor acquires Whites Concrete

Published:  04 May, 2016

Barnsley-based Naylor Concrete Products has acquired the Whites Concrete business of flooring manufacturer Longley Concrete.

Naylor Concrete Products has had an eventful 2015, celebrating its 50th anniversary, as well as moving premises from Ossett to a nine-acre freehold site at Barugh Green, Barnsley.

Whites Concrete is a £2m turnover manufacturer of pre-stressed and pre-cast concrete panels, retaining walls and tanks. The business is currently based on the Longley site in Dewsbury. As part of the transaction, Naylor will move the business to its Barugh Green site, freeing up space at Dewsbury for Longley’s planned expansion of its flooring business.

The Whites Concrete commercial team will be relocating to Barugh Green and joining Naylor. Longley director Michael Wright will be assisting Naylor with the transition on a consultancy basis.

Helen MacIntosh, managing director of Naylor Concrete Products, said: “The acquisition of Whites Concrete extends our offering and we are looking forward to working with the company’s team to develop sales of this exciting range.”
