Burnley freight and haulage firm announces acquisition

Law firm Davis Blank Furniss has acted for Burnley-based EFS Global on its acquisition of PDQ Specialist Courier Services. The value of the deal has not been disclosed.

PDQ’s head office is in Bromborough but the firm also has centres in Buckinghamshire, Alderley Edge and Ireland.  It was established in 1998 and provides specialist courier services across the pharmaceutical, hazardous and medical professions with a range of highly specialist temperature controlled solutions.

EFS Global is one of the North West’s largest freight and haulage groups. It currently has eight depots and offices across the country and operates its own UK and European road freight fleet. It also works with selected partners around the world. This deal is part of EFS’ ongoing growth and acquisition strategy across the UK.

The team at Davis Blank Furniss advised EFS Global on all aspects of the deal including legal due diligence and transactional matters. The team was led by Sonio Singh who is a partner in the corporate department.

Mark Jones, MD of EFS Global, commented: “PDQ is a great addition to the EFS Group and we are delighted that Brian and Amanda Brennan – long-term directors of the business – will be carrying on steering the firm into the future. It really is a case of business as usual for PDQ’s staff and clients but with the added benefits that come with being part of one of the UK’s leading freight and haulage companies.”

Sonio Singh, added: “This deal is another milestone for EFS Global as it further strengthens its position and reach in the freight and haulage sector.”
