Clearwater Advisor

Staffordshire-based Abnormal Load Engineering Ltd (ALE), which offers a world-wide service in the transportation, handling and installation of heavy loads, has doubled its size through the acquisition of Brambles Heavy Contracting (BHC) – the third biggest player in the heavy load engineering sector. The Nottingham office of corporate finance house Clearwater International acted as lead advisors on the deal, which opens up major overseas expansion opportunities for the combined group.

“The acquisition by ALE of BHC is an important strategic move securing their position as the number two player in the world, opening up new geographic markets and bringing synergistic benefits.”
