McArdle acquires Skeath

Dundalk, Co Louth, Ireland: McArdle Transport has acquired Skeath Refrigerated Transport and rebranded the business as McArdle Skeath, reports IrishTrucker.com.

McArdle Skeath provides transport, refrigeration and storage in Ireland, the UK and Europe. “The forming of McArdle Skeath has been significantfor us and our clients, especially at a time when the industry faces many challenges from fuel costs to ever changing regulations,” said Micheal McArdle, managing director, McArdle Skeath.

“Our business and Skeath’s businesswere very compatible and we share the same visions and values which have evolved from listening to the needs of our clients.

“Since the acquisition we have also made a significant capital investment in our fleet. In the transport sector most companies have scaled back on capital investments due to increasing pressure on margin caused by high fuel prices; this is very worrying as the average life cycle of a truck is 7 years, which makes our industry extremely capital intensive. For companies that have not or cannot invest, it is often the first signal of underlying problems within the sector.”

McArdle Skeath has built a new warehouse at its 13 acre site based in Inniskeen to provide a total of 20,000 pallet spaces.

McArdle Skeath is accredited by the Irish Medicines Board, the Department of Agriculture, Department of Transport, and the US Food and Drug Administration.
