The new acquisition means that Wernick will add additional manufacturing capabilities and increase their fleet with more than 2,000 cabins and modular bays.
AVDanzer, also known as Danzer, is a Manchester-based firm that supplies high-quality modular buildings for sale or for hire. The business has a long history of catering to some of the UK's major infrastructure and development projects including the London Power Tunnels Project and the nuclear power station at Hinkley Point in Somerset. In addition, they are widely known to cater to a range of sectors and can provide schools, hospitals, offices, laboratories, sports facilities and more.
Following the acquisition, Danzer will continue to operate as usual from its sites in Manchester and Langley Mill. The manufacturing of anti-vandal steel that is currently based at Langley Mill will continue trading as AVDanzer. Meanwhile, the Brentwood depot will merge and become a part of Wernick's depots in Essex and Kent.
Wernick's Group Chairman, David Wernick, commented on the transaction, explaining: "We have strong admiration for Danzer's manufacturing capability and products, and after initial discussion it quickly became apparent that both family-owned businesses share the same values of excellent customer service, outstanding product quality, focus on safety, and keeping things simple.
We are delighted to welcome the Danzer team to the family and look forward to sharing ideas and growing the business further."
Director at AVDanzer, Dan Holloway, also commented: "We pride ourselves on being agile and innovative to adapt to new market conditions; the Covid pandemic has really driven the demand for high-quality innovative accommodation and offices and our team has kept us at the forefront of developments in our sector.
We are pleased to join forces with a business with a similar history and ethos. With the combination of Wernick and our team of experts, we are confident that this transaction will boost our capabilities to offer even more flexible solutions to both new and longstanding clients."
