Brabners advises Veka on acquisition

Burnley-based PVC window recycling firm Veka has acquired Bowater Building Products for an undisclosed sum.

A team of seven from the Liverpool and Manchester offices of law firm Brabners Chaffe Street, led by Caroline Litchfield and Tom Burton, advised Veka on the acquisition.

Veka specialises in creating moulds which PVC is passed through to make a particular design or shape. The extruded PVC is then cut and formed to make window frames.

Veka, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary year of manufacturing in the UK, said its acquisition of Bowater Building Products will further strengthen its market position.

Dave Jones, Veka's managing director, said: "Veka has continued to invest in its systems, people and plant and is now in the position to demonstrate further commitment to the local and UK market with this acquisition. Whilst this acquisition will see us emerge as one of the largest manufacturers of window system in the whole of the UK, we remain a family owned firm and will continue to offer our customers the level of top quality products and services they have come to expect."

The legal team at Brabners Chaffe Street included corporate associates, Ruth Hargreaves and William Ngan, commercial associate, Colin Bell, corporate solicitor, Leo Carroll and property associate, Paul Nicholls.

Brabners Chaffe Street also has an office in Preston. Wragge & Co acted for Bowater Building Products.
