The deal ensures continued trading of James A. Cuthbertson Ltd as a company and secures the future for this historic brand. The deal provides an exciting future for both companies and their valued customers and trusted suppliers.

Founded in 1936, James A. Cuthbertson Limited (‘Cubbys’, as they are known locally) specialise in winter maintenance equipment, commercial vehicle modification and general engineering. Atlas Winch and Hoist Services Limited provide heavy lifting and pulling equipment to a range of industries, with one of the most comprehensive ranges in the UK.

The two firms have a long history of successful co-operation, working together for over 20 years and sharing Atlas’ main UK site in Biggar, South Lanarkshire. Their combined 13 acre site at Station Road, alongside Cuthbertson’s highly skilled workforce, will provide Atlas with a larger design, manufacturing and fabrication facility to assist them when providing for the global market. Cuthbertson will benefit from Atlas’ experience, diverse customer base and access to international markets in the utility, marine and offshore industries.

As well as their core markets in winch, lifting and winter maintenance equipment, both companies have a tradition for innovation and a reputation for creating bespoke projects to overcome unique engineering challenges. Their combined workforce of highly skilled designers, CAD technicians and engineers will further enhance their strength in this area.

Announcing the acquisition, Atlas Managing Director, Denis Lavery said:

This deal enhances both company’s offerings in their relevant sectors, although the aim is to operate both companies under their own brands. Cuthbertson brings Atlas a highly skilled workforce with capabilities and values that complement our own. Together, we will bring more solutions to our clients, give more opportunities to our employees and create increased value for our customers.

Cuthbertson’s Operations Manager, Ewan Tolson, added:

The acquisition secures the future of the historic James A Cuthbertson name in Biggar and beyond and strengthens our position as we continue to lead the way in the design and manufacture of snow ploughs, spreaders, vehicle modification and our industry leading walking floor technology.

Going forward, the firms will operate under their current structure across three sites in the UK.
