Two Great British clock manufacturers join forces as Good Directions Ltd acquires Shire Clocks Ltd
07/02/2017

Good Directions Ltd is proud to announce that Shire Clocks Ltd is now part of their group of companies.

British manufacturer Good Directions, specialist in the design and production of exterior clocks, clock towers, architectural features and metal guttering, has acquired Derbyshire based exterior clock specialist Shire Clocks as part of its continued expansion plans.

Welcoming the deal, Good Directions Managing Director Alan Gingell said: “we are always looking at ways to expand our business, diversify our product ranges and improve services for our customers. We are confident that by combining the two companies we will be able to offer a range of products and services unrivaled by any other UK clock company.”

The deal marks another milestone for Good Directions Ltd as they approach nearly 30 years in business. With a strategy of continual investment in product development, staff, software and machinery the company continues to grow and today operates from a 19,000 sq ft facility in Botley, Hampshire where they not only fully support their own manufacturing needs but also service many other companies and industries both locally and across the UK.

Having worked with Good Directions Ltd for many years, when looking for someone to sell the business to, Shire Clocks couldn't think of safer hands to take the company forward as they explained: “It was a tough decision to make however we didn't want to see the heritage laid down by Peter Twigg and then Paul Barker being lost forever. Being a part of a bigger company gives Shire Clocks access to a wide range of other products and services unrivaled by any other clock company in the UK and as such this will help us enhance the service and product ranges offered to our trade and retail customers alike.”
