Ford Campbell makes family builders sparkle

Corporate finance advisers at Ford Campbell have completed the sale of family builders' merchants Joseph Spark & Sons to Travis Perkins in a multi-million pound deal.

The 122-year-old business was sold after the firm helped Joseph Spark build up a business with turnover of around £6m, built up through an acquisition and integration strategy, which began ten years ago.

Managing director Robert Spark said Ford Campbell had provided the company with ‘proactive advice over the years’ which has trebled the value of its business.

Jeremy Carr, corporate finance partner at the firm described the Sparks as ‘perfect corporate finance clients’.
