Nisbets has finalised the acquisition of Mitre Linen for an undisclosed sum, although foodservice customers have been assured it will continue to operate as an independent business.
Mitre, based in Merthyr Tydfil, has been making and distributing a range of linen products including bedding and bathroom toweling for hotel, as well as table linen for restaurants for the past 70 years.
Tim Carr, finance director at Nisbets, says the acquisition will benefit Mitre clients and its employees.
“This is very much a strategic acquisition which means we now have substantial linen offerings for our customers that will complement Nisbets’ existing catering equipment product range.
“Mitre has a strong set of values and, like Nisbets, prides itself on giving great service to its loyal customers in a range of sectors, including hotels, universities, hospitals and laundry.
“We very much look forward to continuing to build Mitre Linen’s capability and offer in the future.”
