IRELAND - Lakesmere Acquires McMullen Architectural Systems Ltd
December 7, 2012

Lakesmere, a building envelope specialist contractor, has acquired the assets of McMullen Architectural Systems Ltd, a façade contractor. The recent acquisition will save 133 jobs in Northern Ireland, where McMullen has been trading for more than 40 years and contracting staff throughout the UK. The company and its assets will be transferred to a new subsidiary of Lakesmere, McMullen Facades Limited, and will become part of the Lakesmere group of companies.

"I have known and respected Ted McMullen and his team for many years," says Mark Davey, managing director of Lakesmere.

"They have a strong heritage in the specialist facades marketplace and we intend to ensure that the name and reputation of the company lives on as part of the Lakesmere Group. There are natural synergies between our businesses which will enable Lakesmere to offer clients an enhanced range of services in both the UK and internationally where Lakesmere has built a significant reputation in recent times."

McMullen Facades Limited will continue to operate from its Northern Ireland headquarters.
