Brit European acquires TankPlus

As part of its expansion plans, Brit European Transport Limited has purchased the assets and good will of Tank Plus Limited for an undisclosed sum. All current employees will transfer with the business.

Brit European has annual sales of circa £40m and operates within the UK and Europe in a number of specialized transport areas including vehicle delivery, chemical road tankers and carpet distribution.

Tank Plus is a small independent operator in the fuel and bulk powder sectors and is based in Ellesmere Port, Cheshire.

Commenting on the deal, Graham Lackey Managing Director of Brit European Transport Limited, explained the rationale.

“We were looking to develop the size and scope of our Bulk Liquids Division and the Tank Plus opportunity fitted the bill. We have no plans to change anything in the short to medium term as Tank Plus appears to be working well and delivering what its current customers require. The location at Ellesmere Port however throws up some immediate opportunities for extending our tanker operations further.”
