Baldwins takes over Turner Peachey
Walsall-headquartered accountancy firm Baldwins has taken over counterpart Turner Peachey, bringing its total estate to 13 offices and 300 staff across the Midlands and Wales.
Turner Peachey's offices in Bridgnorth, Oswestry, Shifnal, Shrewsbury and Welshpool, will now be renamed Baldwin Turner Peachey.
John Baldwin, who founded the practice in 1971 with his father, said the two businesses were "an ideal fit".
"This is our biggest expansion to increase our offices from eight to 13 and with the positive economic climate we are experiencing in the region, we are confident about moving forward with our continued growth strategy," he added.
"We have a key presence in many towns and cities in the Midlands but we wanted to expand into Shropshire and Mid-Wales. We had been exploring the possibilities for some time but wanted to ensure any expansion was a perfect fit in terms of the size of the business and its ethos."
Elwyn Turner, director of Baldwin Turner Peachey in Shrewsbury, said: "Our relationships with our clients will be strengthened by this acquisition because we are able to expand the range of services we can provide.
"Baldwins has a well-established business model which has organically grown over the years and we are looking forward to working with their team of specialists in various accountancy fields to help the businesses of our clients to grow."
Baldwins Accountants now has branches in Ashby de la Zouch, Coventry, Tamworth, Walsall, Wolverhampton, Bridgnorth, Nottingham, Stourbridge, Shifnal, Oswestry, Shrewsbury, Leamington and Welshpool.
