Dunstall Holdings has acquired Amvar Handling Solutions Limited and Amvar Storage & Workplace Solutions Limited.

Dunstall Holdings is based in Staffordshire and owned by local entrepreneur and farmer, Simon Clarke.

The Amvar companies, which were formed in 1998 and are based in Cradley Heath in the West Midlands, are engaged in the supply and maintenance of materials handling equipment and workplace and storage solutions. The business was previously owned and managed by Malcolm Mitchell, who will continue in the businesses as sales and commercial director.

The purchase of the Amvar companies follows the acquisition of Lift West Limited in 2018 and further strengthens Dunstall Holdings’ presence in the materials handling sector.

The Lift West takeover came after Dunstall Holdings bought Rea Valley Tractors, one of the largest John Deere dealerships in the UK, in 2010.

The new acquisitions are very similar to Lift West in that they supply a wide range of new and used forklift trucks and warehouse equipment, together with hire, service, maintenance and spares, according to Clarke.

Amvar also supplies driver training, pallet racking systems and mezzanine floors, together with many additional industrial work space solutions through its catalogue and web sites.

Like Lift West, the businesses are a supplier of the TCM range of forklifts but focus on the Birmingham, Dudley, Telford, Walsall and Wolverhampton areas. The territories covered by Amvar will complement those already covered by Lift West, which include Stone in Staffordshire and also the region from Gloucestershire down to the South West of the country.
