Diversey Holdings Ltd has completed the acquisition of Shorrock Trichem, a distributor of cleaning and hygiene solutions and services based in north west England.

“This acquisition strengthens our position in the UK, one of our key geographies,” said Phil Wieland, CEO of Diversey. “The combination of our businesses will allow us to offer a broader range of products, solutions and services to both our distributors and direct customers. I am pleased to welcome Shorrock’s 240 experienced colleagues to Diversey and I am proud that this great, family-owned business saw Diversey as the right home for its people and its next phase of growth.”

Duncan Fishwick, co-owner and commercial director at Shorrock Trichem, said: “We are very excited to combine forces with the team at Diversey and believe that the values they share match perfectly with those of Shorrock Trichem’s employee and customer base.”

Shane Mahoney, Diversey’s head of UK and Ireland, added: “Shorrock Trichem has a great team of experienced people, shares our approach to excellent customer service and has outstanding products which complement our own portfolio in areas such as warewashing and laundry equipment sales.
