How we assisted Simtex International +

Within one of Constantine’s logistics companies was a very successful but small division specialising in the transport of Hazardous Goods. The management saw the potential to grow this sector and, with Constantine Group’s support, looked for a complementary business to merge with. In 2008, Simtex International was acquired and the two businesses have since been combined under the Simtex brand.

Constantine Group used its expertise to assist in the negotiations and supported this acquisition financially, recognising that the two businesses had a common ethos but different customers and a different approach. The combined expertise immediately propelled this company into a market- leading position, which it maintains to this day.
