ND acquires Hopkinson

resized-Pic-Norbert-Hopkinson-TransportNorbert Dentressangle has bought UK family-owned Hopkinson Transport in order to enter new markets.

Operating 25 vehicles from two sites in northern England, Hopkinson specialises in transporting and storage of bulk powder and PVC resin. The acquisition will help Norbert Dentressangle’s plans to increase its presence in bulk polymer distribution, the company said.

Ann Dawson, managing director at Norbert Dentressangle Tankers, commented: “We look forward to welcoming the Hopkinson Transport team into Norbert Dentressangle, where we can develop the strengths of the combined businesses and grow our bulk transport and logistics opportunities with the support of the Norbert Dentressangle Group.

“As Norbert Dentressangle is a family owned business, we share the same values and customer focus as the owners of Hopkinson Transport. It is these common values that have enabled this acquisition to progress very smoothly.”
