CCL take over Air Filter Services
Contract Components Ltd (CCL) has acquired Air Filter Services (Air Conditioning) Ltd. As a result, two new CCL branches - the first in the North East - are added to the company's national network of specialist ventilation centres.
Announcing the purchase of the family owned business, Geoff Lee, joint managing director of CCL, explained the synergy between Air Filter Services and the CCL network.
"Thanks to John Watson and his colleagues, Air Filter Services is a respected name in the North East and particularly in the fan market. Now that reputation will be enhanced by CCL's comprehensive service backed by our national manufacturing and stocking facilities. Customers will be able to enjoy CCL's "one-stop-shopping" policy for all their ventilation system components - via our trade counters and fast delivery service.
With this development in the north east, CCL now has two principal manufacturing bases and thirteen branches throughout the country. Coming hard on the heels of expansion in Nottingham and West London, it means that we have seen an increase of 30% in the number of CCL branches in the last year alone! Further expansion is already in the pipeline."
CCL will retain the services of John Watson as a consultant and all technical and front line staff from the former Air Filter Services organisation. The facility at Stockton will become a CCL branch operating in association with a brand new 9000ft2 depot on the Team Valley Trading Estate in Gatehead.
Both branches provide modern warehouse facilities and trade counter units offering comprehensive stocks of ductwork, fans, grilles and accessories so that most day-to-day requirements can be met literally 'off the shelf'.
Branches will also be backed by CCL's main production plants in Manchester and Kent and the £3 million of stock held in the company's national network.
With annual sales now heading towards eighteen million pounds CCL is firmly established as the country's leading manufacturer and distributor of spiral flexible ductwork and also supplies a comprehensive range of components and accessories for ventilation and air conditioning systems of all types.
