CCL ACQUIRES ALLVENT
Contract Components Ltd (CCL) has expanded into the millennium with the acquisition of Allvent of Stoke-on-Trent.
Announcing the purchase of this family owned business, Geoff Lee, joint managing director of CCL, explained that Allvent would find a perfect niche in the CCL network.
"Gay Mills started Allvent six years ago and has always been a regular CCL customer. Under her guidance the company has become the leading supplier of ventilation components in the Stoke area, offering an unrivalled service to ductwork contractors, maintenance departments and others.
Gay and her team, including her son Darren and Kevin Shaw, will be staying on helping us to build on this very sound base by expanding the product range with fans and other components."
Allvent becomes the fourteenth branch in CCL's national network, offering modern warehouse facilities and a trade counter with comprehensive stocks of ductwork, fans, grilles and accessories so that most day to day requirements can be literally met "off the shelf". All branches are backed by CCL's main production plants in Manchester and Kent and the £3 million worth of stock held in the -network. Over half the branches also manufacture spiral ductwork for local customer requirements.
Gay Mills is in no doubt that working with CCL means a bright start to the new century.
"I felt that we had developed the company as far as was possible as a private business. With the backing of CCL we can grow quickly, offering an even better service to customers in the Stoke area. I am confident that we can double sales of the branch over the next twelve months and I plan to be part of the CCL team that will drive those sales higher still in the years to come."
With annual sales now over £20 million, CCL is firmly established as the country's leading manufacturer of spiral flexible ductwork and also supplies a comprehensive range of components and accessories for ventilation on air conditioning systems of all types.
