Cheshire-based company Quartermaine Distribution has completed the acquisition of Scott Brothers, saving six jobs. Scott Brothers recently entered into administration due to the impact of the Covid-19 epidemic, but the procurement by Quartermaine Distribution has saved the longstanding operation from closing permanently.
With household brand names such as Packmate, Honeywell, Russell and more in its portfolio, the Quartermaine Distribution is able to continue providing storage and air cooling solutions to UK retailers.
Duncan Pratt-Thompson, managing director of Quartermaine Distribution said: “The impact that the Coronavirus had on the company was unexpected and sudden, so we’re thrilled that we were able to find a solution that would not only save the business model so we can continue supplying trusted and leading brands to the UK market but also save six jobs.
“Scott Brothers is also a respected and well established name in retail, and the acquisition by Quartermaine Distribution means that relationships and the heritage which has already been built can continue.”
