White and Robinson will be remaining within the business, continuing to take an active role in the company.

Steve Jones, who leads the team, said: “It is business as usual. Even though the ownership of the business has changed, this will not have any impact on our customers, service or relationships. We have all been closely involved with the management and operation of the business for many years and have been preparing for this change for many months, so we are confident of achieving a seamless transition.
