Bestway strengthens its Scottish business with Sher Bros acquisition

Bestway has bought Sher Brothers Cash amp; Carry in Glasgow for an undisclosed sum.

The deal, completed yesterday (April 3), sees Sher Bros integrated into the Batleys Scotland division of Bestway Group with the depot sporting dual Bestway Batleys branding.  

This brings the total number of depots trading under the Batleys Scotland umbrella to eight. In addition, Batleys has a further 20 depots nationally including three pet warehouses. There are a further 35 Bestway depots, bringing the group’s national branch footprint to 63 depots.

Younus Sheikh, managing director of Bestway said: “Bestway is continually looking at expanding our business whether that is through the investment in new sites or through acquisition. The purchase of Sher will give the Batley brand a presence in the heart of the city as well as the depot in Cambuslang – which is showing impressive double digit growth in 2014 – and demonstrates the Bestway Group’s commitment to Batleys andScotland.”
