Johnston Carmichael advises John R. Adam and Sons on sale

The acquisition of John R. Adam and Sons Ltd will take the number of locations Recycling Lives operates in across the UK to 23

The Corporate Finance and Tax team of Johnston Carmichael has recently assisted Glasgow-based recycler John R. Adam and Sons Ltd in their sale to Recycling Lives, the UK’s processor of end-of-life vehicles.

John R. Adam and Sons Ltd is a business with a heritage of over 130 years, and is a recycler and exporter of ferrous and non-ferrous metals, situated in Glasgow’s King George V Dock.

The acquisition of John R. Adam and Sons Ltd will take the number of locations Recycling Lives operates in across the UK to 23, take its employee count to over 550, and hit over £300 million turnover.

Jake Adam, now managing director at Recycling Lives, said: “The parallels between our two companies makes this a great fit. When you look at what we do, the culture and the importance that community has to both businesses, it’s clear just how complementary our companies are.”

Andrew Ewing, corporate finance partner at Johnston Carmichael said: “We have worked with John R Adam and Sons Limited over a number of years and are delighted to have been able to support them on their sale to Recycling Lives.”
