Macdonald Henderson is delighted to note its role in advising Mr Thomas Barrie (owner/seller) in the management buy-out of the Currie European Transport Group (recently rebranded Currie Solutions) (the “Group”).

Having been with the business most of his working life, Mr Stephen Turner has achieved the long term ambition of owning the company, originally founded by Norman Currie.

“I am delighted, as someone who’s lived in Dumfriesshire man and boy, it’s been a huge part of my life working with Curries, and to finally be in the position to acquire the company is a real privilege.

My vision is simply to ensure that we become the business of choice for our customers and staff to work with and in doing so we enable the growth of business in Scotland, the rest of the UK and Europe”.

The Group has been providing companies with transport and storage solutions at the cutting edge of logistics since being incorporated in 1977.

The Group delivers tailored solutions by moulding its comprehensive range of services to meet the exact requirements of the individual customer.

With headquarters in Scotland, and strategic locations in England, France, The Netherlands and through our partners in Germany and Italy, the Group ships goods throughout the UK and Europe, quickly and securely.

The modern Euro 6 compliant fleet has over 250 vehicles and 500 trailers which include a range of specialist equipment to suit all business needs.

About the role played by Macdonald Henderson, Mr Barrie commented:

“Macdonald Henderson, led by corporate director Fraser Morrison advised the seller group on the sale of the company to the management team. From the outset, I felt comfortable and well advised in the transaction.

The deal involved group assets across (three) jurisdictions and Macdonald Henderson represented the seller interests in a committed and dedicated fashion, liaising with (five) sets of lawyers in the process.

I am delighted with the service rendered and would recommend Macdonald Henderson in all respects”
