Peterborough-based manufacturer Advanced Handling has been acquired by Swedish-owned Sunnex Group from Metalrax Group.
The acquisition will be part of a group specialising in the materials handling and lifting equipment sectors.
Sunnex Group has two specialist divisions: Sunnex Industrial and Sunnex Lighting and Medical. The company had previously been growing sales in the UK through its existing operation, Movomech Pronomic (UK), which will be absorbed into the business of Advanced Handling going forward.
From its Market Deeping facility, Advanced Handling continues to design and manufacture standard and bespoke products, including mobile and static scissor tables, access platforms, stackers and mezzanine floor lifts.
