Arleigh International Ltd. has today announced the acquisition of marine wholesaler, Aquafax Ltd.

With its headquarters based in Luton, Aquafax is one of the UK’s leading wholesale distributors of marine and industrial equipment and has a network of six regional depots strategically located around the UK.

Aquafax supplies all sectors of the marine industry, from marine engineers to the largest boat builders. Its product range also lends itself to applications outside the marine industry, including specialist vehicle builders, coach builders and plumbers as well as supplying into the mobile electricity solutions market and other general industrial applications.

Alastair Thomas, MD of Arleigh Group Ltd., said: “Our acquisition of Aquafax further enhances our position as the leading marine distribution business in the UK. It also strengthens our Speciality Leisure Division. We will be looking to maximise synergies between Arleigh’s current well established marine businesses (Midland Chandlers and ASAP Supplies) and Aquafax with immediate effect.

Arleigh International Ltd acquired marine distribution specialist A.S.A.P. Supplies Ltd in May 2017.

Congratulations to Alastair for completing his third London marathon in a new personal best of 3h 56m. He managed to raise over £4,000 for Beat, the eating disorders charity, and they are absolutely delighted. A big thank to everyone who has supported Alastair again this year.

I can now proudly and graciously hang up my trainers.”

Alastair Thomas is running the London Marathon

This year I am running the London Marathon again for a little known but excellent charity Beat. We have selected Beat as our workplace charity and it is amazing how many staff, colleagues and friends have had their lives affected by eating disorders, once you raise the subject. Many of us just don't appreciate how these illnesses wreak havoc on lives and families and the work Beat do to identify and deal with these issues, which can be life-threatening, is so valuable. The team at beat are all really motivated and so supportive so it is with pride that I will be donning the Beat vest again on Sunday 24th April.

From a personal perspective this will be my fourth marathon now and I am certainly not getting any younger, or lighter! I know it will be hard, especially the last 6 miles which seem like an eternity, but I would dearly love to break the 4 hour barrier which I got close to doing last year finishing in 4.04, so that is my personal target.

Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.
