This acquisition has allowed Thorns Group to significantly expand its event equipment hire business and grow in key regions across Yorkshire which further cements the business in the North.
“We have always looked at opportunities to expand our UK coverage and with this acquisition we believe we’re now in a great location that will allow us to develop the increasing opportunities available, and continue providing a wide range of services to all of our private and commercial clientele,” commented Graham Langley-Jones, managing director of Thorns Group.
“Their expertise will be vital for our growth strategy and we are delighted to welcome YouCanHire and its employees to Thorns Group. We look forward to a long and prosperous relationship.”
