Rocal Group – which includes Rocal Insulating Panels Ltd, Rocal Indoor Ltd, Rocal Foiling Limited, Rocal SIPs Ltd, Rocal Extrusions Ltd and the Endurance Doors brand – has been acquired by the existing management team from the previous owners, James and Sandra Longley. The transaction was completed on 2 March 2021, led by the management team with financial guidance from Forrester Boyd, legal advice from Bridge McFarland LLP and financial support from Aldermore Bank PLC. The management team that has acquired the group comprises of Stephen Nadin, managing director, Alison Jenkin, group accountant, Garry Brewin, operations director and Kevin Ashe, production director.
There are three distinct parts to Rocal Group: first, Endurance Doors, which supplies a wide range of premium, solid timber core composite doors to over 1,000 installers across the UK. In the past 18 years, the business has evolved into the fastest growing and most trusted and respected suppliers of premium, solid core composite doors, they say.
Secondly, Rocal Extrusions, which specialises in the manufacture of plastic extrusions, decorative wrapping and secondary operations. It also supports the Endurance Doors product proposition. Thirdly, Rocal Door Panels manufacture PVC-U door panels under the brand names of Aboda and Impressions. It also supplies some of the biggest names in PVC-U window and door manufacturing across the UK.
The change in ownership will see a continuation of the group’s business strategy and its sustained investment programme. This is to support further growth, with a company-wide commitment to product innovation and exemplary customer care.
Stephen Nadin, managing director of Rocal Group, said: “We are genuinely elated with the deal, which will allow us to continue with our long-term business plan. This will enable continued investment across all aspects for the group’s business, including Endurance Doors and importantly offers greater long-term stability for employees, customers and business partners.”
