Manor Concepts team to remain in place as two company look to grow design and manufacacturing
Arneg SpA of Italy has acquired a 100% shareholding of Bedfordshire based Manor Concepts for an undisclosed sum. Manor Concepts has been trading in Sandy for over 18 years, servicing the major supermarkets with a specialist cabinet refurbishment service. For the last 12 years, it has been developing and marketing its own range of retail display cabinets.
The acquisition of Manor Concepts by Arneg sees the collaboration of two forward-thinking companies that operate in different areas of the UK market, the firms said. The merger will provide significant benefits to both companies as well as existing and new customers.
The manufacturing capabilities at Manor will be able to support the existing Arneg dealer network giving them access to a local production and development facility, strengthening their business offering and helping them serve customers to a higher level, the firms said.
The experienced team at Manor Concepts will remain in place to manage the day to day business in the UK. They are excited by the prospects of working together as part of the Arneg family to continue to develop and manufacture innovative new product ranges that will provide customers with the very best solutions.
Since its inception, Manor has invested strongly in manufacturing and finishing equipment. It has built a significant production facility across two sites where all the company’s products are made in-house. It has two cabinet development and testing facilities, with the second one opening last year, providing Manor Concepts with the capability to test to ECA standards in both R404 and CO2 on site.
Manor Concepts has become a leader in both the design and development of retail display refrigeration. Over the years, it has gathered together a strong team of experienced engineers who develop bespoke and innovative new products, bringing them to market quickly.
The company recently established two operating divisions, Manor Refrigerated Cabinets and coolsuredoors. The Manor Refrigerated Cabinets division designs and produces a range of retail display cabinets for the leading supermarket chains. The coolsuredoors business has been developed in response to the growing importance of energy saving, with a range of cabinet door solutions that can be fitted on both new and existing retail display cabinets.
