Scottish purchase to enhance KAT portfolio
A MACCLESFIELDBASED manufacturer has acquired a Scottish branch to expand its product portfolio.
With manufacturing operations at Queens Avenue, Macclesfield, and Newhaven, Sussex, KAT’s new manufacturing base in Scotland will trade as Ayrshire Aluminium and provide additional commercial and retail products for its existing customers in the UK and Ireland.
It has acquired established business, Ayrshire Shopfronts in Kilmarnock, to expand its product range for its existing national customer base.
KAT’s recent investment in Macclesfield’s expanded manufacturing facilities and state-of-the-art machinery, has confirmed the company’s plans to grow production and service provisions.
Chris Powell, managing director, KAT, said: “The benefits of our acquisition of Ayrshire Aluminium will transfer directly to both KAT’s and Ayrshire Aluminium’s existing customers across the UK and Ireland.
“We have the most comprehensive range of aluminium and uPVC products, in the domestic, commercial and retail sectors.
“We anticipate continued market growth, which in turn will bring new production and administration opportunities in Macclesfield.”
