Hamilton Bower has completed the first stage in its expansion programme with the acquisition of fellow rival, Ludbrooks at Northowram, Halifax.
The company, which started out with a branch in Shipley, West Yorkshire, is delighted to announce that we have taken over the residential sales and letting portfolios in Halifax and surrounding areas, as well as our already well-established Bradford-based portfolios.
The acquisition has resulted in an extra 100 properties being transferred to our management, bringing our total portfolio of properties under management in Yorkshire to over 300.
Hamilton Bower founders, James Hamilton, born in Halifax and Mark Bower, born in Bradford, who established the company in 2010, are making plans to open further branches in the near future.
Bower, a former professional footballer for Bradford City and Halifax Town football clubs and former Bradford Park Avenue manager, is therefore a familiar face within the expanded areas that the company now serves. As a Northowram resident himself and with family involvement in the local community, the acquisition has been warmly welcomed by residents. Mark Bower said:
“The expansion to the Halifax area and to the office in Northowram is significant for both James and I personally, as well as being a positive move forward for the company.
“My family and I have lived in Northowram village for over ten years and James lived in Shelf for 18 years so we already have valued connections here, as well as extensive knowledge of the local area and community.”
James Hamilton added:
“This is the first acquisition we have made since establishing the company, representing a major milestone in our expansion programme.
“We have a programme of exciting growth planned for the company with further expansion planned for the future.”
