TWT Logistics Group acquired by Aquila Food Group – Part of Opulentia Capital > Acquisition Press Release > TWT Logistics Group acquired by Aquila Food Group – Part of Opulentia Capital

The Aquila Food Group Holding Company Limited, an investment holding company, is delighted to announce its 3rd acquisition with the latest into the logistics sector with South Wales based TWT Logistics Ltd and her subsidiary, Switch International Trailers (UK) Ltd, based in Andover, Hampshire.

The TWT Logistics Group quickly developed an excellent reputation for handling time critical consignments in the print industry in the late 1980s. As the print industry shrank, the company moved into the delivery of white goods, home furnishings and building products for some of the largest names in these three industries. Now the group move virtually every product that you could imagine delivering 24 hours a day and 7 days a week across the country.

TWT operate from its 5.5 acre headquarters in South Wales with offices, warehouses and a purpose built workshop facility. Switch operate from a three acre road and rail fed site at Andover. The two companies have a superb reputation for service and provide a diversified selection of curtain sided, box van, container trailer, as well as platform trailer deliveries and collections for many blue chip and SME customers. The company operates a 90 vehicle and 140 trailer fleet across the UK with an International office which handles global imports and exports.

Many companies are delighted to let us take the pain and stress away from this minefield of rules and regulations and let our team of experts organise the delivery of raw materials from a supplier thousands of miles away or delivery their product to a faraway land with peace of mind that they will arrive on time.

Mark Strachan, Director of Aquila, commented: “We’re delighted to have the opportunity to build upon the model Trevor and his team have created and look forward to continuing the existing levels of service ensuring the legacy and longevity of the TWT Group endures. We’re looking forward to working alongside Trevor in his ongoing advisory capacity and staged retirement plan whilst making further acquisitions in this 7th services vertical of the Aquila Food Group”.

Trevor Taylor, TWT Logistics Group founder commented “It was quite hard to consider selling the company that has been my baby for so many years. We had received lots of offers from competitors to sell over the last decade but none of these seemed to be the right fit for the company, so we never took them very seriously, as we didn’t need to sell. When I met Mark Strachan, I immediately warmed to him and was exceptionally excited listening to his aims for both TWT Logistics and the Aquila Food Group for the future so for me these were the best people to take TWT forward, as at 66 years of age you need to slow down just a little bit.”
