Modular specialist Wernick has bought smaller Manchester-based rival AVDanzer to boost production of site cabins in the face of rising demand from contractors.
The new acquisition means that Wernick will add additional manufacturing capabilities and increase its fleet with more than 2,000 cabins and modular bays.
AVDanzer, also known as Danzer, supplies major infrastructure and development projects including the London Power Tunnels Project and the nuclear power station at Hinkley Point in Somerset.
Following the acquisition, Danzer will continue to operate as usual from its sites in Manchester and Langley Mill.

The manufacturing of anti-vandal steel that is currently based at Langley Mill will continue trading as AVDanzer. But its Brentwood depot will merge and become a part of Wernick’s depots in Essex and Kent.
Wernick’s Group Chairman, David Wernick, said: “We have strong admiration for Danzer’s manufacturing capability and products, and after initial discussion it quickly became apparent that both family-owned businesses share the same values of excellent customer service, outstanding product quality, focus on safety, and keeping things simple.”
