Sylva Group snaps up Crocodile Timber Frame

Published:  11 September, 2013

Bespoke design and build solutions provider, Sylva Group has acquired part of Crocodile Timber Frame’s business operations.

As of 1 October 2013, Sylva Group will become the exclusive supplier of the Crocodile Timber Frame system, and will welcome Crocodile’s eight-strong project delivery team to the company. Sylva will benefit from a significant increase in design and operational capacity.

As part of a separate framework agreement Sylva will purchase manufacturing from Crocodile's quality-assured plant based in Swindon.

Craig Strachan, development director of Sylva Group, said: “This is a very exciting time for Sylva. The acquisition will allow us to widen our market, integrate our supply chain and provide much more for our customers. We look forward to welcoming Crocodile’s project delivery staff to our team, and continuing to deliver the first-class customer service that has been the hallmark of both company’s operations to date.”

Quentin Philip, managing director of Crocodile, added: “We are pleased to confirm this positive development for both companies and look forward to manufacturing the Crocodile Timber Frame system on behalf of Sylva and continuing to provide other subcontract manufacturing to the industry.”
