Spearing Waite has advised Robert Pochin Limited in its acquisition of Mike Lodge Plumbing and Heating Merchants.
Leicester-based Pochin is one of the Midlands’ largest independently owned plumbing and heating merchants. The company’s heritage dates back to 1861, making it one of Leicestershire’s longest established businesses.
Its purchase of Walsall-based Mike Lodge Plumbing is part of a strategic move to grow its presence in the West Midlands.
Spearing Waite has acted for Pochin on a number of deals, including the recent acquisition of RC Bigwood in Birmingham in 2016.
Spearing Waite Head of Corporate, Jahid Ali, said:
“We are always delighted to work with the team at Robert Pochin. The company is going from strength to strength, helped by its decision to focus on its core Midlands market.”
Pochin’s Managing Director, David Pochin, added:
“We are pleased with the purchase of Mike Lodge Plumbing and Heating. It is an excellent business with a strong reputation for outstanding service and quality products. This makes it an ideal fit for Pochin, as we seek to consolidate our position as one of the Midlands’ leading bathroom retailers and plumbing merchants.”
