Scott Group has acquired Cheshire-based Northern Case in a strategic deal which supports Scott Group’s timber pallet business, Scott Pallets, in improving its geographical presence and operational capability in the North West of England, as it continues to serve local industry nationwide.
The Northern Case Ellesmere Port site is undoubtedly a very positive addition to the Scott Pallets portfolio. Its state of the art facilities include automated production, kilning, covered storage, an experienced team, and further space to expand the business on the seven acre site. There are 45 staff employed by Northern Case, and Scott Group hopes to increase this number over time as future investment plans are formulated with the local management team.
The Northern Case business will benefit from Scott Group’s secure long term timber supply, technical capabilities, wider team knowledge and range of sustainable pallet solutions.
