Acuity advises Owens Group on the acquisition of Celtic Couriers

Key Contact: Phil Pugh

Acuity Law is delighted to have advised Owens Group, the UK’s leading transport and warehousing company, on their acquisition of Celtic Couriers, a reputable family-run business that operates the APC parcel network and Fortec pallet network in South-West Wales. 

Owens Group has achieved exceptional growth in recent years, both organically and through acquisitions – Acuity having advised on their acquisition of BTS Haulage in 2018. The acquisition of Celtic Couriers complements Owens’ ambitious growth plans, increasing and expanding their existing express delivery and pallet network services throughout the UK. 

Phil Pugh, Corporate Partner at Acuity Law, said: “Owens Group is a fantastic client and we are very pleased to see its continued growth. The Celtic Couriers business is a great complement to the existing business and we enjoyed working with the team on another successful acquisition.”

Corporate Partner Phil Pugh and Senior Associate Tom Saunderson led the transaction, with cross-departmental support from Ben Honour, Emma Hutchings, Daniel Evans, Chris Doherty and Ffion Morgan.
