Benchmark International Successfully Facilitated the Transaction Between Prima Yorkshire Limited and Duraweld Limited

Posted on January 13, 2023 By

Benchmark International is pleased to announce the acquisition of Bradford-based Prima Yorkshire to Scarborough-based Duraweld.

Prima Yorkshire is a manufacturer of bespoke packaging solutions for retail products, storage, and stationery, providing a complete design and manufacture service using materials including PVC, corrugates, boards, and papers.

Established over 60 years ago, Duraweld employs around 50 staff and designs and manufactures a wide range of packaging and stationery products for customers, working across sectors such as healthcare and retail.

The acquisition of Prima Yorkshire by Duraweld is an excellent strategic fit and will help the buyer expand its customer base. Duraweld is also set to benefit from the additional capability to auto die-cut and fold as well as glue cartons by way of Prima’s manufacturing capabilities.

Do you have an exit or growth strategy in place?

Prima’s former owners are being retained as consultants to the business, and the company’s branding will be retained.

Mark Yeung, managing director at Duraweld, said: "As a market leader in customised stationery and packaging, Prima further extends our range of products, enabling us to continue to expand the business. In such a competitive sector, it’s vital to keep looking to the future and planning for growth – the acquisition of Prima will make a significant contribution to our business, adding to our skilled team and building on the solid foundations we have established.”
