Kitwave acquires Brierley Hill-based Central Supplies

North Tyneside-based wholesaler Kitwave has acquired Central Supplies, of Brierley Hill, Birmingham, a leading independent wholesaler of chilled products. The purchase price has not been disclosed.

With a turnover of around £50 million and operating from two locations – one housing a recently-built 30,000 sq ft depot – Central Supplies services both the retail and wholesale sectors.

The Midlands company, founded in 1988, handles a wide range, including cheese and cold meats.

Ben Maxted, Kitwave head of frozen & chilled operations, is joining the Central Supplies board alongside existing directors David Packham and Sean Trow.

Apart from the latest acquisition, Kitwave’s existing seven wholesalers operate from 26 sites, their deliveries covering ambient and fozen food, foodservice products and alcohol.
