Pro­tec­tive coat­ings dis­trib­u­tor New Guard Coat­ings Group has ac­quired a build­ing ma­te­ri­als sup­plier as it looks to ramp up its na­tional cov­er­age and in­crease growth.

The Wetherby-based busi­ness has snapped up Ar­con Con­struc­tion Sup­plies with im­me­di­ate ef­fect.

Ben Cooper, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of New Guard Coat­ings, said: “We’re very ex­cited to wel­come the Ar­con team into the NGC Group fam­ily. They have all been with the com­pany for a long time and have the same ethos and val­ues that we al­ready hold around the group.”

Ar­con is based in Cheshire and pro­vides con­crete re­pair prod­ucts, screeds and floor paints and coat­ings.

New Guard Coat­ings op­er­ates in a va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent in­dus­tries rang­ing from oil and gas to steel fab­ri­ca­tion. “Ar­con gives us ac­cess to mar­kets and prod­ucts which com­ple­ment our cur­rent of­fer­ing,” Mr Cooper said.

Ar­con will keep its own brand­ing and iden­tity, as with pre­vi­ous takeovers in­volv­ing New Guard Coat­ings.

Ian Beswick, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Ar­con, said: “We are really happy to be­come part of the New Guard Coat­ings Group, who with their proven track record, can en­sure the busi­ness con­tin­ues for the staff and cus­tomers alike whilst also pro­vid­ing ex­cit­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for the fu­ture.

With a deal be­ing in the pipe­line since May, this has been a straight­for­ward process, which is a credit to both par­ties and the es­teem that we hold each other’s busi­nesses in.”
