Sherwood Group is delighted to announce the acquisition of Inal.

At the time of the acquisition, Inal is a name well known and admired in the aluminium industry.

One of the longest standing independent suppliers of aluminium extrusions and aluminium processed components, Inal (2020) Ltd offers Sherwood Group a significant foothold in a number of key sectors and an important geographical location in the North West of England.

The acquisition swells Sherwood’s 130,000 square feet of factory space, 90+ staff and turnover to around £30 million a year. 

“We’re delighted to be joining the Sherwood Group, ensuring aluminium business stays in Manchester for future generations” said Liz Collier, Inal 2020 general manager.

In a separate development, the Sherwood Group management team confirmed the purchase of the Smithfold Lane site for Inal (2020) Ltd. 

“At a time of general uncertainty, this underpins not only our commitment to the future of the Manchester site but also our confidence in the groups’ ability to face the challenges ahead,” said Sherwood Group co-founder Terry Franklin.
