Protective and corporatewear company Cosalt has acquired its business rival Seet Plc in a cash offer that values the business at £5.7m. The acquisition exploits the synergies between the two organisations, and should enable Cosalt to explore the growth potential of its clothing businesses, expand into new markets, and achieve efficiencies in sourcing and procurement by increasing the proportion of goods made overseas. The company currently designs, manufactures and distributes workwear, career-wear, corporatewear and high visibility protective clothing under the brand names of Cosalt Workwear and Cosalt Clothing Solutions.
