York based feed firm in buyout deal

William Thompson (York) Ltd, one of the region's oldest and largest animal feed producers, based in York, England, has been acquired by its management team for an undisclosed sum.

The £15 million (€22.4 million / US$30.9 million) turnover company, which has 47 staff, provides a wide range of dairy, pig, beef, sheep, game and fish feed compounds to farmers throughout Yorkshire and the north-east.

Carefully planned
Mr Andrew Richardson, who lead the buyout deal said: "This has been a carefully-planned transfer which evolved over a number of years. It rewards the former owners for their hard work in building up the business, and hands over control to a highly-experienced management team. "Our independence remains intact and we will continue to offer our high-quality products and service.

"We have sensible and sustainable growth plans, but the underlying message all round is that it is business as usual, providing performance feeds with a strong nutritional base and a high degree of customer service."
