Kinaxia Logistics has acquired the business of BC Transport from their administrators.
BC Transport is based in Billington, close to the Macclesfield base of Kinaxia. The Kinaxia Group now has nine businesses and is planning to make further acquisitions in the coming 12 months.
Kinaxia logistics director, Peter Fields said: “This is likely to be our last acquisition this year but we anticipate making further investments in the next 12 months and these will be in line with our aim to build a flexible and efficient, service-focused haulage and warehousing group covering the UK.”
The purchase follows the acquisition of Warrington-based Mark Thompson Transport in July. Other Kinaxia companies include: Bay Freight, William Kirk, NC Cammack, Foulger Transport, Lambert Brothers, Panic Transport, and Maiden’s of Telford.
BC Transport was originally founded in 1964 and offers general haulage as well as pallet network services, and as such is a good fit in the Kinaxia Group whose other companies do similar work. BC Transport was one of the founding members of the pallet network Palletforce and under new ownership with continue to work with the network.
Fields said: “We are delighted to welcome the team from BC Transport into Kinaxia, and as a fellow Macclesfield based business, we are pleased to have been able to save the jobs of the local workforce.”
