Robert Scott acquires Contico

With effect from 1 March 2012, Robert Scott & Sons has acquired the total share capital of Contico Manufacturing Ltd from owners, Proventec Ltd. Contico Manufacturing Ltd will continue to operate from its premises in Redruth, Cornwall under the current management team.

Contico has been a major player in the professional janitorial sector for the past 39 years and the acquisition by Robert Scott & Sons Ltd is designed to both enhance and secure the company’s future in the supply and manufacture of its range of added value manual cleaning products.

Alastair Scott, director of Robert Scott & Sons, said: “This is an exciting development - both companies have long-standing reputations for quality and service standards that we feel can only be enhanced by this acquisition. Due to the unique nature of many of their products, we intend to operate Contico as a separate and distinct business thereby continuing the excellent service levels that Contico offer, whilst offering the long term stability of Robert Scott and Sons’ 80 years of trading.”
