Modular Group Investments Ltd (MGI) announces the acquisition of Oakland Glass Ltd. This is a key strategic addition to the Group, which adds significant capacity and capability in insulated double glazed unit production, and provides established routes to market for Oakland Glass through MGI’s existing and future channels.
Oakland Glass (est. 1986) provides high-quality IGUs to the market, and has steadily grown into a market leader in its field. It combines traditional values and expertise to provide ‘A Service That’s First Class’, establishing strong and long-standing relationships with customers, suppliers and employees.
MGI purchased the entire share capital of Oakland Glass Ltd, with the transaction closing on 8th February 2023.
Michael Garratt, founder at MGI (pictured), says: “I am very excited to add Oakland Glass Ltd to our Group and to have the opportunity to build upon what the team has created.
“We look forward to a promising future together – MGI plans to acquire more componentry manufacturing business this year in order to continue to diversify our product portfolio, but also to strengthen our customer relationships by offering more products and service.”
Giles Richell, Group CEO at MGI, says: “This is a great addition to the MGI Group and provides a depth and scale of vertical integration that we believe is unmatched by our competition. This will allow us to supply our multiple construction markets with the best service and most competitive solutions in the industry.”
Amanda Falsey will be continuing in her role as Managing Director and Tina Moorhouse will stay on in her capacity as Oakland Sales Director. MGI welcomes Amanda and her team to the Group and looks forward to working with them and growing the business further with its help and support.
