Border Group acquires Teesdale Event Site Services Limited

Carlisle-based business Border Group is delighted to announce its acquisition of Teesdale Event Site Services Limited (trading as TESS).  Operating out of Barnard Castle, TESS provides toilet and shower hire services for the construction and event services sectors, which complements Border Group’s own BorderLoos portfolio, giving the company a substantial and well-known presence in the North East.  As a result, Border Group will be able to offer these hire facilities across the north of England, strengthening the company’s Construction, Welfare & Events division.

Henry Lloyd, Border Group’s Director, commented, “This acquisition is particularly exciting for Border Group as it significantly expands the geographical area we can cover from West Cumbria across to Tyneside.  It has been just over a year since Border Group was acquired by machinery dealer Lloyd Ltd, and we feel this is the ideal opportunity to continue to grow the business after a successful first year of operations.”

Henry added, “Like Border Group and Lloyd Ltd, TESS is a family-run business with a loyal and extensive customer base.  We therefore intend for TESS to continue to trade under its current branding for the foreseeable future and the TESS team will be working as normal to offer the same excellent service for which they are renowned.  We are looking forward to bringing our businesses together and moving the company forward.”
