DLA Piper advises Naylor Industries on Amco Plastics and Clough Mill acquisitions

DLA Piper’s corporate team has advised South Yorkshire manufacturing company Naylor Industries on two transactions: the acquisition of Amco Plastics by Naylor Drainage and Naylor Gardenware’s acquisition of Clough Mill.

Amco Plastics is a manufacturer of plastic extrusions and flexible ducting supplying a range of sectors including the leisure, cable, flooring, DIY, mining and tunnelling sectors. The business will remain on its current site in Wath and will trade as a division of Naylor’s Specialist Plastics business.

Clough Mill imports high-quality frost-proof and glazed garden pots from its factory in Ipoh, Malaysia. Naylor has acquired the manufacturing, importing and distribution of this brand.

The DLA Piper team was led by partner Richard May, who was assisted by senior associate Paul Roberts and associate Lorna Parkin.
