Arleigh Group announces the Acquisition of marine wholesaler Aquafax

Arleigh International Limited has acquired leading UK marine equipment wholesaler Aquafax Limited for an undisclosed sum.

With its headquarters based in Luton, Aquafax is one of the UK’s leading wholesale distributors of marine equipment and has a network of six regional depots strategically located around the UK.

Aquafax supplies all sectors of the marine industry, from marine engineers to the largest boat builders. Its product range also lends itself to applications outside the marine industry, including specialist vehicle builders, coach builders and plumbers as well as supplying into the mobile electricity solutions market and other general industrial applications.

Alastair Thomas, MD of Arleigh Group Ltd., said:

Former Aquafax owner and current MD, Nigel Pearson, joined Aquafax as a sales rep in 1999 and completed a Management Buyout of the business with Andrew Mason in 2010. He will continue in his current role and says it will be very much business as usual.

Arleigh International began trading as in 1969 and will record sales this year of £50m. The Group acquired Marine Mart in 1997, Midland Chandlers in 2006 and A.S.A.P. Supplies in May 2017.
