Tent firm ac­quired

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Front Page -

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.”
