Tent firm acquired
ONE of Dundee’s oldest businesses has pitched its tent after snapping up an Angus marquee firm for an undisclosed sum.
The DP&L Group — founded in 1826 — has acquired AJ Henderson Ltd of Blairgowrie.
It will merge the company with its existing Allison & Stiven marquee business and employ 10 full-time staff, increasing to 20 in the busy summer months.
Four new jobs are set to be created as a result of the move, which will also see the firm rebranded as Henderson Gray.
Alick Bisset, group managing director of DP&L, said he was “delighted” with the acquisition, adding: “This i s a quality business.”
