Barnes of Lincoln acquired by White and Company

Oct 09, 2017
White and Company PLC has acquired the long established and respected BAR member Barnes of Lincoln Limited.

This now increases the group network to 21 locations, including Jersey, Guernsey, Majorca, Colchester and Poole.  

The acquisition involves a freehold warehouse capable of holding some 600 containers together with a substantial general warehouse of some 12,000 square feet. The acquisition also increases the Group’s substantial fleet by a further fourteen vehicles in an area where it has not previously had any presence.  

Ian Palmer, CEO of White and Company commented that the business is already run on an extremely professional and profitable basis and was delighted that the sale and handover was so smoothly handled by the former owners David, Jeremy and Julian Barnes who will remain with the business in the short term.  

David Barnes and his wife Margaret who dealt with the sale of Barnes of Lincoln Limited are thrilled that the company will continue to be in safe hands. "After five generations of our family we are particularly pleased that employment will remain the same for our loyal staff, many of whom have been with us for a great many years,” said David. “We feel that White and Company will be able to move the business forward with the same focus on customer service that has worked so well for us over five generations since 1919."
