Eddisons has announced the strengthening of its professional services team with the acquisition of specialist consultant Croft Transport Planning and Design.

Based in Manchester, Croft was established in 2010 by director Phil Wooliscroft and provides highways, transport and traffic advice to clients in the public and private sectors. Its clients include major housebuilders, property developers, councils, and a range of commercial occupiers.

Croft employs 10 people and specialises in preparing supporting statements for planning applications as well as undertaking a range of advisory work including developing transport plans, network modelling and feasibility surveys. 

Anthony Spencer, Partner at Eddisons, said: "I am very pleased to welcome the Croft team into Eddisons. The acquisition will enhance our professional services business, through widening the range of our specialist consultancy services and increasing the number of our clients.

“This is our fourth Eddisons acquisition since we joined the Group and we continue to seek opportunities for further growth, both organically and by strategic acquisition.”

Phil Wooliscroft, managing director of Croft, commented: “We’re excited to be joining Eddisons and the opportunities this brings. We wanted to find a partner that could assist us with developing our business on a national basis. 

“There is a strong overlap with the sectors we operate within, and I look forward to delivering a more compelling proposition for our clients.”

The firm will integrate with Eddisons and form part of the group’s broader advisory services.
