Cobbetts advises Langley on acquisition of Manroland UK

Cobbetts has advised the Langley Holdings group of companies on its acquisition of the Manroland UK sheet-fed business and related assets from Manroland Great Britain acting through its administrator PWC.

The business, based out of Mitcham, Surrey, employs a team of 37 sales and maintenance engineers selling and supporting sheet-fed printing equipment that is manufactured by its German parent company Manroland Sheetfed.

Langley Holdings last month also purchased (acting through its administrator in Germany) the business and assets of the Manroland Sheetfed printing machinery business from Manroland, creating a new German parent for this worldwide business.

The UK acquisition just completed reunites the UK business with Germany and more than 40 other related Manroland companies around the world, all now under Langley ownership.
