ME Construction was founded in 2007 and has rapidly grown to successfully compete with the larger plcs in the industry. Its focus on quality and commitment are key characteristics that are at the heart of the company and its success in providing development works across several sectors including healthcare, education and retail.

Fischer D’Alton has been searching for the right Company to launch its business strategy and ME Construction proved to be the perfect fit and in keeping with Fischer D’Alton’s own ethos.

Helping to ensure ongoing business success

Franklins are proud to have provided not only corporate legal advice to Fischer D’Alton on the transaction itself, but through our specialist teams assisted with finalising funding and securing the engagement of the Sellers post-completion to ensure continuity and the ongoing success of the business.

“We are proud to have acquired ME Construction Ltd and we are excited about the future potential of this growing business. The staff and previous Shareholder Directors have committed to stay with the business for the foreseeable future and, having attracted the investment they were seeking, this strong team of industry leaders are continuing to drive the future stability and growth of the Company. Franklins, and Holly Threlfall in particular, have exceeded all expectations in the level of service and care with which they guided us to complete this difficult transaction”

– Nigel Cowdery, Chairman of Fischer D’Alton Limited
