Burges Salmon has advised Michelmersh Brick Holdings Plc on the acquisition of Carlton Main Brickworks Limited, the independent brick manufacturer.

A large cross-firm team from Burges Salmon, led by corporate partner Dominic Davis and associate Peter Dunn, advised Michelmersh on all legal aspects of the £31 million acquisition.

Steve Morgan, Michelmersh's finance director, says: "This was a long-running transaction and we are very grateful to Dom, Pete and the entire Burges Salmon team for their support throughout the deal and for helping us complete this important strategic step forward in our growth."

Carlton is a highly respected regional brick manufacturer, operating from a 93-acre brickwork site based in Yorkshire.  Its manufacturing output and strong product offering complements the geography and market segment of Michelmersh.

Dominic Davis comments: “We are delighted to have been able to support our long-standing client Michelmersh on this significant transaction and we have thoroughly enjoyed working with the Michelmersh team once again. The acquisition is an important strategic step forward for the company which will add significant scale, output and earnings to its group.”
