One of the UK’s leading independent glass merchants and processor groups has continued its expansion with a further strategic acquisition.

United Glass Group who has their headquarters in Walsall in the West Midlands, has acquired London Architectural Glass (LAG) which is based in Hayes near Heathrow Airport. London Architectural Glass is a UK supplier of bespoke architectural glass to premium residential, educational and heritage projects throughout the UK. Expert tax advisors Claritas Tax assisted United Glass Group with its acquisition of LAG, having been the trusted advisors on previous similar transactions.

Ses Memhi, Associate Partner at Claritas Tax who led the team said:

“We have a fantastic relationship with Steve Thornhill (of Intelligent Corporate Finance) and Mark Harrison (CEO of UGG), so we are delighted to have assisted on this acquisition. UGG continues to make great strides in this industry which certainly isn’t easy in the current economic climate. We wish them every success and are very happy that we were able to help with their growth strategy” 

Mark Harrison of CEO of United Glass Group commented:

“Claritas have advised on another acquisition for United Glass Group.  The team at Claritas and the advice they provide are invaluable.  They fully understand our business and can apply that knowledge to focus their work on the key tax issues that are relevant to us. They have always demonstrated an ability to provide practical and timely information and advice.  We regard Claritas as a key trusted adviser.”

Ses Memhi was supported by Najma Qamar, Faith Ross and Iain Wright from Claritas, with Jamie Partington and his team of Higgs & Sons providing legal services.
