R. Swain & Sons Ltd acquire Gatwick Plant Ltd

The assets, staff and business of Gatwick Plant Ltd have been acquired by the R Swain & Sons Ltd Group from midnight on Wednesday 30th September 2015.

R Swain & Sons Ltd is a £50 million turnover transport company with a balance sheet value in excess of £10.5 million and we have been in existence since 1918.

We will continue to operate under the name of Gatwick Plant Ltd. It will function as a separate standalone company within the group. All the existing operations and sales team will remain. Matthew Swain the fifth generation of the Swain family will be the Director overall responsible for the Gatwick Plant operation. He is based at our Rochester Head Office site depot but he and members of his team will be regularly on site at Gatwick and he will be arranging visits to meet most customers in the coming weeks.

As far as we are concerned it will be business as usual and the team we have in place look forward to serving you and continuing a successful partnership.

Bob Toon is looking forward to retiring. While gradually stepping back he will be involved in the business for the next 6 months working with Matthew Swain to ensure a smooth hand over.

Orders, instructions and any queries will still be dealt with at Gatwick Plant as it is at the moment.

All Sales invoices will be generated from Gatwick Plant’s Horley site and there will be no change to the bank details for payments.
