Quattro Acquire Geoff Brown & Sons
20 October 2017
During October, Quattro Plant acquired the fleet of Geoff Brown & Sons. The acquisition makes Quattro one of the largest suppliers of rail-mounted drain cleaning services in the UK.
Quattro Plant has acquired the assets of specialist drainage company Geoff Brown & Sons, who provide a range of services nationwide including: Rail Contracting, Emergency Response and Commercial Cleaning.
This purchase will see Quattro Plant take over the rail drainage department of Geoff Brown & Sons, providing them with a range of additional equipment including specialist drain clearing equipment, high pressure jetting capability, CCTV surveys and new, specially constructed road haulage vehicles, ensuring that they are now at the forefront of rail mounted drain clearing in the UK after their recent introduction of the truck mounted Mad Vax.
The equipment will immediately start operating under the Quattro Plant name, initially from the Lockerbie Depot.
Quattro Plant has one of the largest and most varied fleets in rail plant, including the new specialist suction excavation machine, Mad Vax. Quattro are known for successfully supporting large projects such as the recent upgrade at London's Waterloo Station. Geoff Brown & Sons, with a history of investment in machines such as the RRV Vactor/Jetter combination and unique 'one-offs', an excellent reputation in health & safety, quality and problem solving of difficult jobs will only add credit to the Quattro Plant workforce by absorbing the former GBL team!
Geoff Brown, founder and Managing Director of Geoff Brown & Sons Limited is stepping aside from the rail sector in order to focus on other interests including his charity work which is very dear to him.
John Murphy, MD of Quattro Group said "The Geoff Brown & Sons team will be a welcome addition to the Quattro Plant family, helping our regional strengths and rail knowledge grow with specialist know-how and management of railway associated drainage issues. We are now the UK leader and our investment in this sector is planned to carry on right through CP5!"
