Worksop barrier and fencing company acquired for £2.5m

Arena Events Group has expanded its UK product portfolio with the acquisition of Worksop based specialist barrier and fencing company Events Solution Limited for £2.5m.

The acquisition will see the Worksop-based company integrated into Arena’s current UK business. Events Solution’s core product range includes pedestrian barriers, Heras fencing, front of stage and Metropolitan Police barriers, as well as gantries and staging. The Company has a wide range of customers including British Cycling, Live Nation, music festivals and local councils.

This latest acquisition is in line with Arena’s growth strategy of providing a comprehensive suite of services to event organisers and will strengthen the Group’s offering to existing clients as well as help attract new clients. Events Solution will continue to operate out of its existing Worksop base and will also expand to offer products from Arena’s existing Cambridgeshire hub as of next year.

Greg Lawless, Chief Executive Officer of Arena, said: “Building on our recent UK acquisitions of specialist furniture hire company, GLD, and temporary refrigeration supplier Ice House Rentals, the addition of Events Solution adds yet another in-house capability to Arena. This diversification extends our offering to existing clients as well as attracting new clients to Arena’s other services.”

James Wood, MD of Events Solution, said: “Since being established in 2010, Events Solution has established an array of clients ranging from film premieres in Leicester Square to mass participation events to national music tours and festivals.  Joining Arena will give us the resources and extended network to continue growing our client portfolio in line with our ambitions.  Myself and the team are very excited about a strong future as part of Arena.”
