Andrew Page continues rapid growth with Camberley buy

Vehicle components business Andrew Page has taken its number of branches to over 90 following the acquisition of Camberley Auto Factors.

Private equity-backed Andrew Page’s national expansion, which has seen in double in size in two years, has been boosted by the purchase of Camberley Auto Factors, a fellow auto parts company.

Leeds-based Andrew Page was subject to a management buy-out back in March 2010 when the now managing director, Mark Roberts, led the deal. Supported by investment firm Phoenix Equity Partners, the deal was worth £101.7 million.

According to the business, the acquisition of Camberley is part of its expansion programme, with the two companies having a ‘shared vision of delivering quality service’. The two are said to be compatible and provide a number of synergies.

Roberts comments, ‘We now anticipate building […] and continuing our national growth strategy with our new chairman, Duncan Wilkes, together with the team at Phoenix working alongside us.’

New non-executive chairman Wilkes comes to Andrew Page having previously been CEO of Nationwide Auto Centres, a chain of 220 car service centres.
