The deal means that Denny Bros can expand its product offerings to include nameplates, fascia labels, under surface printed labels, vinyl labels and waymarkers.
Based in Hadleigh, near Ipswich, Richard Ching & Son will continue to be run by general manager of 30 years, Ivan Kistruck, and will operate under its current identity.
Denny Bros chairman Barry Denny said: ““I am delighted that we have taken over Richard Ching & Son. They are a great company with a good work-force and offer an excellent range of specialist signs, labels and nameplates. Their activities dovetail in to those of Denny Bros and Willowbridge Labels, a company we bought a few years ago, and which has gone from strength to strength as a result of our involvement and investment.
“I am sure we can do the same with Richard Ching & Son Ltd, and look forward to progress being made over the next year or two.”
Kistruck added: “Richard Ching’s previous owner, Sheila Harrington, took great care in selecting the right company and the right people for us to work with. The news has been extremely well-received here as it provides job security and with the possibility of new markets comes the prospect of more employment in the future. We look forward to having a long, successful future with the support of the Denny Bros Group.”
This latest acquisition now takes the Denny Bros Group of companies to 10.
