UAP acquires Midlands firm in ‘strategic’ deal

January 5, 2023


Manchester security firm UAP has acquired a West Midlands company for an undisclosed fee.

Whitefield-based UAP, which specialises in locks and hardware for doors and windows, has taken over Security Hardware, from Eurocell.

It specialises in domestic PVC-U door and windows hardware, supplied online and through more than 200 Eurocell branches across the UK.

David Jennings, UAP CEO, said: “This strategic acquisition will provide our customers with even more choice, including a wide range of specialist products that we’ve never offered before.

“These include a high quality window lock, different types of window handles and van and garage security hardware.

“Security Hardware customers can benefit in the same way, with access to UAP’s entire product range, providing them with a one-stop-shop for all their needs.


“Adding a West Midlands-based distribution centre to our network is another key development for our business, enabling us to serve customers in this region more quickly and effectively.

“Long term, we’re planning to employ more delivery drivers and warehouse operatives at this site to strengthen our logistics capabilities.”

Mitch Masters, procurement director of Security Hardware, said: “There were obvious synergies with UAP which made this acquisition a natural next step for our business.”
