Bins manufacturer Taylor has bought the container company Sellers, saying it protects jobs and allows development of Sellers’ Oldham site.

Taylor’s chief executive David Williams, left, said Sellers was a family business with a unique identity that was respected throughout the industry.

“We aim to retain this whilst enhancing the customer service experience in line with the Taylor offering,” he said.

“The acquisition brings together two celebrated businesses, each with a successful complementary product portfolio, and will ensure that both brands continue to flourish in an increasingly competitive domestic and international marketplace.”

Brian Sellers, who founded Sellers in 1975, will join the Taylor executive team along with Clive Gallagher, who will oversee the Oldham site.

Gallagher said: “This deal has ensured that Sellers is a stronger business going forward and will be a catalyst for the development of the Oldham manufacturing site.”

The acquisition is part of a growth strategy by which Taylor has expanded into international territories such as Malaysia and Kuwait.

It says the group will now focus on developing new products and services for both its home and export markets.
