Good Travel Management has expanded its operations with the purchase of Uniglobe Regent Travel.
Hull-based Good Travel Management has purchased its fellow Uniglobe member for an undisclosed fee from owners Martyn and Patricia Greenwood. Good purchased fellow TMC Mercian Travel in 2011.
Uniglobe Regent Travel is based in Stockport and has been operating since 1997.
Good Travel Management’s managing director Kevin Harrison said: “Uniglobe Regent Travel has many synergies with Good Travel Management including client profile, operational procedure and the quality and experience of its team.
“We decided to purchase the firm due to its existing client base and because of its strategic position in the north-west, which significantly extends our market penetration in the north of England.
“Manchester and the north-west are also important strongholds for our sister companies, John Good Shipping and CBI Transportation UK, which have a major presence there, so we are in a good position to partner with them and grow the business.”
Martyn and Patricia Greenwood decided to sell the business with plans to eventually retire but will remain with the company for “the foreseeable future”.
Mr Greenwood said: “Despite being a larger company, Good Travel Management is run along the same lines that we have managed our business in terms of values and customer service.
“Furthermore our clients will benefit from additional services available from Good Travel Management and the wider John Good Group going forward, which means the business we have worked hard to establish will continue to offer the great value it has become synonymous with.”
