The Sellers Containers company has been sold by the new owner of the Taylor Bins business, with the Egbert Taylor Group placed in administration.
Egbert Taylor Group went into administration in November. A statement said recent reorganisation left Indigo Capital as the sole shareholder of Egbert H Taylor and the business would continue trading under that name. The company is known for its four-wheeled steel bins and partnership with the US-based Big Belly concern.
Sellers is now owned by Visionscape, and its sale is said to have “strengthened Egbert H Taylor’s financial position and laid the foundations for continued domestic and international growth”.
The 60-year-old Droitwich company said it would “continue to work closely with Sellers Containers and Visionscape”, and the business would now focus on its core four-wheel container business in the UK and abroad.
Brendan Murphy, Egbert H Taylor chief executive (pictured), said: “This is a positive move for the business and one that will enable us to invest more time in building on the success of Taylor, which is quickly becoming a truly international brand.
“We now look forward to growing our UK and international sales, expanding our wide-ranging product portfolio and building on our reputation for delivering unparalleled customer service throughout the waste industry at home and overseas.”
Harry Ackerman, chief executive of Visionscape Group, said: “Sellers Containers represents a fantastic opportunity for the group and strengthens our strategy of vertical integration across our supply chain. Sellers Containers is well known for its quality and high specification, and this fits well with our philosophy of using the highest quality products available to our business.
”We now look forward to continue working closing with Egbert H Taylor and building on what is already a successful relationship.”
Taylor bought Sellers in 2013, saying it was a family business with a unique identity that was respected throughout the industry.
