A team from Midland law firm Higgs & Sons has advised on the sale of one of the Black Country’s oldest firms.
Higgs & Sons advised on the sale of Tudor Crystal Design Ltd and Plowden & Thompson Ltd (P&T) to one of their largest customers, American owned ET Enterprises Ltd, a manufacturer of photomultipliers.
Tudor and P&T are based in the New Dial Glass Works, built in 1788, on the historic Glass Mile. Each company can trace its origins back to the 18th century and the many famous glass makers such as Thomas Webb.
David Ellis from Higgs & Sons led the team dealing with the sale. He said: “Higgs & Sons has been practising law in the Black Country for over 130 years and is proud to have been involved in this sale. It makes a change to deal with a local business that has been in existence even longer than we have and is very much a part of the local heritage. This was a smashing company to deal with and we are very pleased to have been able to assist in achieving a successful sale.”
