The Airedale Group, a provider of design, build and maintenance services for commercial kitchens, has completed the acquisition of South Coast Catering.
Schofield Sweeney's corporate team advised Airedale on the acquisition. The team also provided property advice on the lease of the business.
Schofield Sweeney managing partner Martin Sweeney said: "Having acted for Airedale on its management buyout in 2013, we are delighted to have assisted them in this their next phase of their development and the strategic acquisition of South Coast Catering."
South Coast operates from head offices in Weymouth and employs more than 85 staff. It started trading in this sector in 1991 and although its core business is providing reactive and planned maintenance services, more recently South Coast has diversified into laundry, light equipment and scheme work.
Bradford-headquartered Airedale will combine its technical services division with South Coast's established maintenance business. The enlarged group will employ a network of more than 70 specialist catering engineers, making it one of the largest independent service operators in the UK catering industry.
