Woodall Nicholson makes acquisition

The Woodall Nicholson Group, based in Westhoughton, Bolton UK, has acquired the intellectual property and manufacturing assets of Auto Electrical Services.

The deal will result in the intellectual property and manufacturing assets of AES being brought into Woodall Nicholson’s CM Specialist Vehicle Division.

It supplies a range of vehicle conversions and modifications to the blue and amber light fleet sector and public and private sector fleet operators across the country.

Woodall Nicholson managing director Geoff Hudson commented: “We are delighted to add the AES offering to our automotive portfolio.  This acquisition will further enhance our leading position in the markets within which CM Specialist Vehicle Division operates, and will extend the range of products, services and expertise which we are able to offer customers.”

This latest acquisition will underpin the growth and success of the CM Specialist Vehicle Division, which has gone from strength-to-strength since Woodall Nicholson was acquired by new investors in July 2013. 

CM Specialist Vehicle Division has increased its penetration of the public and private sector markets in the last 12 months, with significant investment in resources to increase its productivity and output. 

It says the deal will allow the division to further expand its offering, to new and existing customers, through the complex integration of robust electrical systems into specialist vehicles.
