MIDLANDS FIRM Baldwins has made its bigger ever expansion, in a merger with Turner Peachey.
Baldwins, which has operated with eight offices in the Midlands, has taken on another five in the deal – and now employs 300 staff. The five offices will be renamed Baldwin Turner Peachey, and spread Baldwins’ presence into Shropshire and mid-Wales.
The deal is the latest in a long line of acquisitions in recent times for Baldwins, including Griffith & Griffith earlier this year.
This is our biggest expansion…and with the positive economic climate we are experiencing in the region, we are confident about moving forward with our continued growth strategy,” said Baldwins co-founder John Baldwin (pictured).
“We had been exploring the possibilities for some time but wanted to ensure any expansion was a perfect fit in terms of the size of the business and its ethos. Both firms have clients in similar sectors. We will be able to offer clients all the services that they currently have plus also provide additional added value services including corporate finance, research and development and tax advice.”
Elwyn Turner, director of Baldwin Turner Peachey, said: “Baldwins has a well-established business model which has organically grown over the years and we are looking forward to working with their team of specialists in various accountancy fields to help the businesses of our clients to grow.”
Baldwins is led by father and son John and David Baldwin, has existing offices in Tamworth, Walsall, Stourbridge, Wolverhampton, Nottingham, Ashby de la Zouch, Coventry and Leamington.
