Tildenet grows with another acquisition

Published: 8 January 2018 - Fiona Garcia

Tildenet has acquired specialist textiles and netting supplier, Fleximas, which joins other brands that are part of the group.

Announcing the takeover today, Tildenet said this latest acquisition signals that 2018 will be “another year of significant growth” for the group, which has recently made a further six-figure investment in its operations infrastructure as part of a sustained programme of modernisation and development across the whole business.

Fleximas follows companies like Haxnicks and Bosmere, which have joined the group in recent years. This week Tildenent announed it had appointed a new product development manager working across all of its brands.

Explaining its decision to take Fleximas on, Tildenet said the ethos of the long-established, family run company, mirrors that of its own, “with service and customer care at the forefront of the business”.

As a result of the deal, Fleximas will now operate from Tildenet’s manufacturing facilities in Bristol.

Tildenet managing director Andrew Downey said: "Fleximas has been established for over 40 years and is a very well-known and respected name within the industry making it a perfect fit for Tildenet and our expanding business. The increased product range and depth of knowledge that come with an acquisition like this will be a huge benefit for our customers and I am sure we will have some very exciting times ahead opening lots more doors to new markets. We welcome Sarah Hendon to the Tildenet Group and her vast experience will help ensure continuity from day one.”

Fleximas’ Sarah Hendon said: “We are delighted to be part of the Tildenet Group at such an exciting time in its growth and I am looking forward to working with its talented teams and the opportunities that this move will bring to our customers.”
