Event specialist Arena Group has acquired the seating and mass participation divisions of Coventry-based Wernick Events and rebranded the business as Arena Seating.
As a result of the multi-million pound deal, Arena Seating’s UK stock has more than 120,000 temporary seats available to the marketplace, delivering over 350 projects this year.
Grahame Muir, CEO of Arena UK & Europe, said: “We are delighted to have completed this deal which will consolidate our strength as the UK’s premier event seating supplier. We are focused on achieving a seamless integration of the business into Arena Seating, whilst retaining the Coventry base and thus improving our service level across the UK."
Steve Shaw will continue in his role as general manager of the Coventry site, reporting directly to Arena UK & Europe sales and marketing director Dave Withey.
