Lincs business swoops for Yorkshire lifts & loading bay equipment maker

A Lincolnshire provider of loading bay equipment, industrial doors, gates and barriers is expanding its scope and presence with the acquisition of a Yorkshire manufacturer of lifts and loading bay equipment.

The acquisition will see Doncaster-based Transdek and Fen-Bay Services work side-by-side under the Fen-Bay Group umbrella, and will generate a combined workforce of 180 employees and £20 million turnover.

Founded in 1997, Transdek manufactures a unique range of surface-mounted, modular loading bay equipment at its South Yorkshire-based production plant.

“The acquisition of Transdek helps us move further towards our goal of becoming a major UK-based manufacturing business in our sector,” said Fen-Bay Group Managing Director Carl Sedlan.

“We see Transdek as a perfect fit for our range of products and services, and this allows us to provide a total product and service portfolio for the industry.

“We were particularly attracted to Transdek’s engineering and innovation capabilities, which dovetail with Fen-Bay’s strength in servicing and project management.

“We’ve built a reputation as a market-leader in 24/7 maintenance, based on our nationwide network of 60 Fen-Bay service engineers and investment in the latest servicing technology. This superb resource will also support Transdek’s products and customers moving forwards.”

Leon Butler, Managing Director at Transdek, said: “There are great synergies between the two companies, and we’re excited about the opportunities for growth and for increased productivity and employment at our Harworth factory.

“Transdek and Fen-Bay both developed excellent customer relations over the years, and have a major focus on providing the best products, services and after sales support for each unique application.”
