Emma Jones advised on the sale of Illingworth & Gregory to Hull-based Sewell Group.
Illingworth & Gregory were a well-established family-owned construction business. Its operations were based in Huddersfield and they specialised in acting as a principal contractor in refurbishment works often carried out in controlled environments such as schools, hospitals, etc.
The company was eventually acquired by Sewell Group. As a Sunday Times Top 10 Place to Work, Sewell Group was selected as the successful bidder as a result of its strong focus on positive working culture and family values. The acquisition of Illingworth & Gregory has enabled Sewell to develop a strong foothold in West Yorkshire.
