Morris & Spottiswood Acquires Cumbrian Maintenance Specialist

Warrington contractor Morris & Spottiswood has acquired Cumbrian maintenance specialist LLED Construction into its maintenance division for an undisclosed fee.

The North West fit out company, which has a reported turnover of £88 million, bought-out founding owner Dee Addison, who will carry on working in his role as the principal of LLED Construction. All employees of LLED are set to be kept on.

MD of Morris & Spottiswood UK Group, Jon Dunwell, commented: “We have worked with LLED Construction for more than 15 years and they have been a key partner throughout this period.

“This gives us confidence in the acquisition as we have built a strong relationship centered around trust. LLED have been involved in many of our projects including both reactive and planned maintenance works for clients around the Scottish border territory and North of England.

“LLED has a first class reputation in the industry for its reliability, accuracy, speed, quality of service and professionalism. The firm benefits from an excellent track record for developing and delivering for its clients including Weatherspoon’s, Heineken, Spar and Edinburgh Woollen Mill.

He said that an important part of the transaction will also see the company retain the services of Addison, who he said has been the driving force behind LLED Construction’s success since day one.

He continued: “Dee will be bringing considerable knowledge and experience which will be greatly valued within Morris & Spottiswood’s maintenance department.

“We have worked in partnership with Morris & Spottiswood for many years and I believe the firm is ideally placed to take ownership of LLED Construction.

“One of LLED Construction’s greatest assets is its highly experienced workforce which has played an instrumental role in making the business the success it is today.

“They will all be retained under the new ownership joining forces an equally talented and driven workforce at Morris & Spottiswood.”
