WJ Group has acquired Bellstan Ltd - a long-standing road marking company based in Berkshire - for an undisclosed fee.
The news follows the introduction to the group of investment partner THI last December, with Bellstan being the first acquisition since the partnership began.
WJ Group CEO and founder Wayne Johnston commented: 'I am excited to welcome the experienced and highly skilled Bellstan team to the WJ Group. Bellstan has a great reputation for an excellent quality service which aligns with WJ's existing values and way of working.
'The acquisition of Bellstan also supports our existing core service and product offering, but further strengthens our service network with additional coverage along the M4 corridor and surrounding areas. We are confident that this acquisition will have a positive impact adding value to all of our customers and our people.'
Bellstan managing director Julian Zaremba commented: 'As Bellstan celebrates 52 years as a Road Marking company, I can’t think of a safer pair of hands than WJ, to take it forward for the next 52.'
In the short-term, Bellstan will continue to trade as previously, but will fully integrate its business into WJ Group by the end of the year.
Founded in 1987, WJ has an impressive track record of growth and is fully committed to its four core values of safety, delivery, innovation, and community.
