Carter Accommodation’s clients are from a diverse array of UK sectors, including education, construction, agriculture, energy, infrastructure and leisure. Its range includes high-spec temporary buildings for use as containers, eco units, classrooms, wards, labs, offices or other uses.

According to a press release announcing the deal, the company generated turnover of £20 million in 2020. In its most recent available financial reports, for the year ended March 31 2019, Carter Accommodation reported turnover of £18.1 million, with operating profit of £6.9 million and a loss for the year of £259,542.

Following the acquisition, Carter Accommodation’s management team will remain in place and will operate alongside Modulaire Group’s UK business Elliott and the group’s newly-acquired welfare unit business Advanté.

A targeted acquisition strategy is one of Modulaire Group’s core strategic objectives. The group, which operates across 25 countries in the Europe and Asia Pacific regions, has around 250,000 modular space and storage units, as well as 3,400 remote accommodation units.

We look forward to working alongside the Modulaire Group team as we embark on the next phase of our journey.”
