Simpkins Edwards acquires Heathfield practice
Devon accountancy firm Simpkins Edwards has acquired Heathfield-based counterpart Adams & Co.
Adams & Co was formed by Mark Adams in 2000. The acquisition follows Adams decision to retire.
Simpkins Edwards said it will be "business as usual" for the practice's existing clients and staff, who will now be supported by Simpkins Edwards partners Jon Williams and Mary Jane Campbell.
Lynn Woodward, partner at Simpkins Edwards, said: "Adams & Co is a highly respected Devon firm and we have known Mark Adams for many years.
"It is a great shame that his recent illness has forced him to retire early, however we are pleased that we have been able to secure the future of such a high quality practice and we intend to build on the excellent foundations that Mark has put in place."
Simpkins Edwards has existing branches in Exeter, Okehampton, Holsworthy, Barnstaple and Honiton.
