Robert Scott acquires UTC

The directors of Robert Scott Group have announced that the company has acquired the total share capital of UTC - Universal Towel Company Ltd. UTC will continue to operate and supply its range of products to the UK and European markets from its current bases in Horsham and Tonbridge, and proprietor, Tony Filer, will remain as managing director of the company.

Recognised as a leading supplier of cabinet roller towels, quality kitchen linen, and industrial wipers in the UK and Europe since its foundation in 1957, UTC has, over the last two decades, seen expansion into the washroom product and dust barrier mat markets, both in the UK and Europe. Recent additions to the UTC range include a selection of laundry bags, Antibac kitchen linen and the new Kompatto fully retractable towel cabinet.

Alastair Scott, director at Robert Scott & Sons, said: “This is an exciting development for the group as both companies have long-standing reputations for quality and service standards that we feel can only be enhanced by this acquisition. UTC shares our values of excellent service levels and acknowledges that customer satisfaction is key to commercial success. Combining that with our joint expertise of textile manufacturing meant that UTC was a perfect fit for the Robert Scott Group.”
