THE KEEN GROUP, based in Wandsworth, South London has acquired Speedicars of Brockley.
Both companies use the Cordic despatch system, which has made for an easy transition and Keith Keen, managing director of Keens, said: “We are grateful for the opportunity to expand our fleet by 120 drivers. We look forward to the exciting times together.”
Peter Waterhouse, owner of Speedicars, which can trace its roots back over 50 years to 1962, said: “It was a difficult decision in deciding to sell, but The Keen group, I feel, were the best company to take the company forward and maintain the high standards that I have worked for over my time with the company. I feel that they will look after my staff and drivers who have been incredibly loyal to me.”
Keith Keen added: “We are always on the lookout for new opportunities.”
