ARK Agriculture Ltd, part of The Milbank Group, has announced further growth with the acquisition of Thomas and Fontaine Ltd/Secure Covers®.

Based in Shropshire, Thomas and Fontaine Ltd are a well-established organisation supplying an internationally patented Secure Cover protective netting specially designed to prevent wind lift and protect silage stored in the clamps, as well as Secure Windbreaks and Secure Econoblinds for agricultural buildings.

Working predominantly in the dairy and livestock sector TFL are recognised as market leaders with their unique products sold under the Secure Covers brand. The company sells its range of products nationally and internationally through a network of established distributors, dealers and merchants.

Highly regarded in the farming community, Secure Covers have earned a reputation for quality, durability, value and design for their leading range of Silage Covers, Windbreaks, Econoblinds and other protective agricultural products.

Whilst it is intended that Secure Covers will continue to operate as an independent business from its base in Shropshire, there are significant synergies that ARK Agriculture believe will strengthen and secure the future of both companies.

Repeat business in the UK and exciting opportunities to develop new and existing markets overseas, as well as the opportunity to cross sell products between ARK Agriculture and existing customers, make Secure Covers a prime acquisition for ARK Agriculture.

This continues ARK Agricultures mission to provide an exceptional level of service to their already strong base of customers throughout the agricultural sector.
