Higgs & Sons’ Corporate team has advised industrial coatings business, Trimite Group, on its acquisition of Bolton based Firwood Paints for an undisclosed sum.

Partner Adrian Cutler and Associate Jamie Partington led the legal advisory team on the deal which continues to consolidate Trimite Group’s position as the UK’s leading privately-owned coatings group.

“As a relatively new client to the firm, we have worked hard to understand how the Trimite team operates and how they want and need their legal services delivered,” commented Adrian Cutler.

“We are looking forward to building our relationship on solid foundations.”

Jamie Partington added: “The acquisition of Firwood Paints will enable Trimite to move forward with its plans to continue to better serve its broad range of customers. We were really pleased to have helped the deal achieve such a successful outcome.”

Trimite Group is one of the world’s leading coatings businesses, supplying global customers from its principle manufacturing facilities in the UK as well as Ireland, USA, Brazil, India, China, Indonesia, Germany and Hungary with a comprehensive range which spans pre-treatment products as well as powder and liquid paint coatings.

David Roberts, Chairman of Trimite Group, said: “We have been in dialogue with Firwood’s owners for some time and their business is a natural addition to our group.

“Firwood will both compliment and extend our range of technologically advanced coatings, all designed and manufactured in the UK, for our world-class customer base.”
