Kingspan / Atlas Access

OFT closed case: Completed acquisition by Kingspan Group plc of Atlas Access Group.

Affected market: Raised access flooring products

No. ME/1081/04

On the basis of the information available to it, the Office of Fair Trading has decided that the completed acquisition of certain assets of Atlas Access Group by Kingspan Group plc does not qualify for investigation under the mergers provisions of the Enterprise Act 2002 (the Act), because the assets of Atlas Access Group are not an enterprise as defined in section 129 of the Act.  A relevant merger situation has, therefore, not been created.
