  • Reason For Sale: Retirement


Established by the Seller in 2001, G. Taylor Electrical specialise in commercial electrical contracting work and provide expert electrical installation services to both refurbishment and new build projects, in addition to electrical testing, maintenance and repair services.

LW Cole (Electric) Ltd (subsidiary of Renniks Limited) have acquired the goodwill and assets of G.

Prompted by the retirement plans of the seller, the Business Sale included the transfer of all employed staff, the customer base, a number of framework agreements, assets and accreditations of the Business, and a lease on the Business premises.

Thanks to the committed approach of both the buyer and seller, the deal was completed within 16 weeks of the initial buyer introduction, and within 12 weeks of a Headline Offer / Heads of Terms Agreement being agreed between the two parties. ACQUIRE acted on the sellers behalf as intermediary in the introduction and deal negotiations. 

ACQUIRE are delighted to have brokered the Sale to Coles, a truly motivated and committed strategic acquirer who were transparent with their intentions from first contact to completion. 

ACQUIRE would like to thank Matt Worsnop of BHW Solicitors in Leicester who provided expert legal representation to the Seller and who was integral in progressing the deal smoothly to a successful completion.

Finally, we would like to offer our very best wishes to the Selling Client (Gary and Sharon), whom we have enjoyed working for to achieve the Sale. We wish you well in retirement.
