Benchmark International Successfully Facilitated the Transaction Between Theme Bins (International) Ltd and a Private Investor

Posted on February 19, 2021 By

Benchmark International is pleased to announce the sale of Gateshead-based Theme Bins to private investor, Patrick Connolly.

Established in 1991, Theme Bins designs, manufactures and supplies benches, litter and recycling bins, storage lockers, and other indoor and outdoor furniture. The company operates from a bespoke manufacturing facility, acting as a supplier and moulding subcontractor, catering to a range of customers across sectors including the commercial, leisure and educational markets.

Patrick Connolly is a private investor engaged in plastics and, along with the acquisition of Theme Bins, recently invested in two other businesses that specialise in different processes within the plastics industry.

Do you have an exit or growth strategy in place?

Commenting on the acquisitions, Patrick said: “I want people to phone us if they want things made in plastic because, between the three firms, I’m sure we’ll find a way.

“For example, parts for Theme Bins we can make at our other sites. That helps open up our development opportunities and the speed with which we can respond.”

Following the acquisition, Theme Bins has been renamed Plastic Furniture Co to reflect its vastly expanded product range after diversifying into street and education furniture, including seats, lockers, and bins for PPE equipment. It will also be launching a new website and increasing its focus on ecommerce.
