The Fresh Group has bought exhibition design and build company, Igloo Events for an undisclosed amount.

Igloo, which was established in 2010 had a reported turnover of £1.3m last year.

“Adding Igloo’s manufacturing skills to our already flourishing design and build service is a fantastic proposition for fresh’s existing client base. Equally, we look forward to bringing our award-winning creative and account management services to Igloo clients,” stated Fresh Group managing director, Patrick Howells.

Based in Middleton, Igloo manufactures and delivers large-scale exhibition projects and the deal will mean that Fresh will take on all design, production, build and delivery at its Heaton Mersey workshop.

“We’ve always been really impressed by the account management and creativity of the fresh team and have enjoyed working with them as a build supplier in the past. The opportunity to join up our skills and experience with theirs made absolute business sense. I’m really looking forward to helping grow fresh’s exhibition offering,” said Steve Savage, director at Igloo.
