The AMES UK group of companies, which includes La Hacienda, Kelkay and Anchorfast, will be exhibiting as a group for the first time at next month’s Glee exhibition at the NEC.
It’s been a very busy year for AMES UK Managing Director, Antony Harker, who has coordinated the acquisition and integration of their latest project to bring Anchorfast into the group.
He is expecting that the pace of change is likely to continue well into the future, with the group actively seeking further similar opportunities.
He has made no secret of the fact that AMES’ parent company, Griffon Corporation (NYSE:GFF), a US public company with approximately USD$2billion in annual revenue, remains very much on the acquisition trail. Griffon and their subsidiary AMES have identified the UK garden sector as a key strategic development opportunity.
Antony said “AMES and Griffon have been hugely supportive and I’m delighted that I will be welcoming the President of Griffon Corporation and the CEO for The AMES Companies, as visitors to GLEE this year. I think it demonstrates the opportunities they see in the UK market and just how serious they are about the group’s growth and expansion plans.”
It’s understood that the senior team from AMES will be meeting a number of businesses over the three days of the show to explore potential opportunities.
