Waste container manufacturer Egbert H Taylor & Co has been acquired by London-based investment company Sullivan Street Partners.
Taylor, which designs and makes steel waste and recycling container systems, will continue to operate from its existing headquarters, logistics centre and manufacturing site in the West Midlands.
David Williams, chief executive at Taylor, said: “We have worked hard to develop a lean and competitive business, the task now is to move forwards with fresh investment and a new development and expansion plan.
“We have been fortunate to find a hands-on investor willing to get involved; it means that key decisions can be made faster, in turn making the company more flexible.”
