Franks Curtis Ltd purchase: Marking the start of the transition to become P&B Kirby Misperton.
“Friday 29th October marked the completion of the purchase of Franks Curtis Ltd, the start of a new chapter as our businesses merge.
Due to it being a share purchase, P&B now own Franks Curtis the company, throughout November we started to incorporate the people and assets into Peacock and Binnington so that it can operate as a depot within our group structure.
It is our intention to embrace the success David, Kim and the team have achieved and use our group functions and economies of scale to enhance the business in the area now and into the future.
Presently, we are changing the name at the depot and getting things ready for the new year. David is being appointed to our Board of Directors and will still very much be the figurehead of P&B Kirby Misperton. Kim has kindly offered to work until the end of the year and help with the transition. Due to the accounts functions moving to Head Office, Rachel Franks is taking a new role as Area Finance Manager, she will be responsible for providing retail finance solutions to help our new and existing customers with their purchase needs.
For now, it’s business as usual, we are here to keep farmers farming and as our slogan states, we are as ever, “proud of our history, excited by our future”.
There are certainly exciting times ahead. We look forward to continuing the successful business relationship and thank customers and staff alike for their continued support.”
