Sims buys West Midlands ferrous merchant

The Sims Group has continued to increase its presence in the West Midlands with the purchase of ferrous merchant Evans and Mondon.

The move is part of a strategy to expand the business across the UK and follows the acquisition of another merchant in the region last year.

Sims Group managing director Tom Bird said: ?The West Midlands region is an area where we have been keen to strengthen our foothold. Late last year we acquired ER Coley (Steel) and the proximity of Evans and Mondon to this site allows for an easy consolidation of the two businesses with a combined total of 100,000 tonnes of metal per annum. 

?These two businesses offer the perfect platform for Sims to continue its expansion into the industrial heartland of the UK.?
