Bestway Wholesale is to complete a deal to purchase Blakemore Wholesale’s Cardiff and Walsall depots in the coming weeks.

The deal will increase the number of warehouses operated by Bestway to 65 upon completion. It comes just hours after Parfetts announced that it was buying Blakemore’s Middlesbrough depot.

Bestway Wholesale managing director Martin Race, said: “We are very excited to add these two well-located and sizeable depots into our estate, and to welcome the employees into the Bestway family as our new colleagues.

“The addition of the Cardiff and Walsall depots will only make us stronger, enhancing our presence in these two key areas, and expanding our footprint and coverage in the UK.”

Both depots will continue to be managed by Blakemore until the deal is completed. All 123 employees at both warehouses will be retained.
