Birmingham firm completes London Taxi Group acquisition.


The company, which sealed a deal to buy Mini specialist Min-Its only two weeks ago, will now be able to move into a new market supplying parts around the globe for London taxis.

Leacy now has access to a 6,000-strong parts range for multiple marques and models of the cabs and – for the first time – will be making these products available online.

As part of the acquisition, Leacy also purchased a fleet of 21 taxis that are ready to be restored, the earliest dating back to a 1950s Marque 7 Beardmore model.

David Keene, Leacy CEO, said: “We are delighted with the purchase. It represents a strategic move into a growing international sector and will diversify our current offering.

“London Taxi Group is a well-known brand that has a loyal customer base, who are passionate about their vehicles.

“One of our key aims is to ensure the continuity of these iconic vehicles for the next generation of owners by enhancing the customer experience even further.”

He added: “We have ambitious plans to hit £10m by 2018 and the acquisition of strong businesses like London Taxi Group will complement our organic growth.

“20 new jobs will be created at our dedicated Aston Lane warehouse as part of this expansion and we are already in the process of recruiting the right people
