Sweden’s Dellner Group has acquired Percy Lane Products, a UK manufacturer of aluminium windows, doors and fabrications for the transport sector, in a move that will add a new dimension to the group’s global product offering.
Percy Lane will become part of UK-based Dellner Polymer and Glass Solutions (DPGS), supplying metal, polymer and glass components for interior and exterior fitments including specialist windows, screens and partitions. The main markets for these products are the rail sector, buses and coaches, commercial vehicles and the aerospace industry.
Percy Lane’s 120 employees will continue to operate from their Tamworth base. DPGS CEO Mikael Petersson said: “Percy Lane is an extremely well run company with whom we already have a close working relationship. We are delighted to welcome them to the Dellner family. Metal fabrication is a new product area for us, but one that complements our UK-based polymer and glass businesses perfectly. ”
Percy Lane Chairman/CEO Graeme Fowler, said: “This is an exciting and important step for our future development and we are looking forward to realising the enhanced opportunities and synergy within the group.”
Dellner Group CEO, Marcus Aberg, said: “We are delighted to be continuing our strategic growth with the acquisition of Percy Lane Products, and to be bringing their skilled workforce into the group. With a shared focus on quality and service, Percy Lane’s customers are assured of a seamless transition, and we are looking forward to offering them an enhanced, integrated service from the Dellner companies.”
Percy Lane’s services include design, engineering, manufacture and testing. They offer bespoke products and replacement parts for new and existing vehicles.
