As part of both companies’ strategic growth plans, a deal was signed on 27th February 2014, with BECK MBI Group acquiring majority ownership of The Hub. The Hub, Midlands based heritage, museum and gallery fit out specialist will remain focused on the UK and European market, taking advantage of the Group’s financial stability, enabling them to expedite the growth of the Hub’s business. In addition to this positive partnership, the Hub have also enlisted the support of experienced and respected Project Director, Dominic Sore bringing his wealth of museum and heritage experience, to enhance the Hub’s portfolio.
Through the nine years of trading, The Hub have grown year on year and have gained an enviable reputation within the museum and heritage sector. The Hub have an established ongoing relationship with notable clients including the Victoria & Albert Museum, Natural History Museum and Tate Modern.
The Hub will remain a separate trading entity to Surrey based BECK Interiors whom are also part of the BECK MBI Group, providing the Group with a second regional facility.
For a number of years, BECK’s organic growth within their sectors has been the envy of many. BECK announced last year their desire to remain focused on the UK museum market, heritage and temporary galleries, which was the strong foundation of its museum sector. BECK are now recognised as one of the world’s leading international museum specialists and this positive acquisition provides yet further geographical diversity and underpins the Group’s origins.
“We are excited at the prospect of being able to implement our growth strategy quicker than we anticipated. To have an endorsement like this from an international market leader in our sector is very exciting. We share the same ethos, attention to detail and focus on quality. This collaboration is a natural progression as it will enable us to move our business to the next stage. It is important to us that we remain operationally autonomous which is an inherent part of our future strategy” – Neil Fox, Managing Director of The Hub
“Our Group has grown through honest hard work and as a privately owned company, our roots are very important to us. This acquisition provides us with regional visibility in a number of our sectors, however we realise that an important part of our business includes the temporary and permanent galleries, heritage centres and regional visitor centres which the Hub offer, with a great reputation that will remain our central focus.” – Lee Vaughton, CEO of BECK MBIBack to top
