Uniglobe member CT Business Travel announces its purchase of Medway Travel Limited.
CT Business Travel’s unrelenting desire to continue to grow its business is no more evident than in its latest announcement of procuring Maidstone business Medway Travel Limited.
After researching and identifying a number of suitable acquisition targets in early 2011, Uniglobe member CT Business Travel initiated discussions with several businesses, of which Medway Travel was one of the parties, and who immediately stood out as a clear opportunity.
Over the course of approximately eight months last year, serious discussions took place that concluded with CT Business Travel officially becoming the new owners of Medway Travel Limited on 09th January 2012.
CT Business Travel’s Managing Director Mark Kempster commented, “Synergies between the two organisations were obvious and we felt that adding the Uniglobe offering to Medway Travel’s business and it becoming an international travel management company would further enhance its client proposition. Medway Travel will continue to operate under the same brand which it has done for the past 18 years servicing both local and national businesses. All staff jobs are safe and its Maidstone office will also remain, which is fantastic news and a win, win for all those involved in the two companies”.
By Medway Travel gaining the Uniglobe status it will transform its offering, such as enabling access to the best industry rates globally and allowing the company to start servicing international businesses on a competitive footing.
With CT Business Travel enjoying good organic growth during the last couple of years, and the recent purchase of Medway Travel, these developments firmly place CT Business Travel as one of the largest independent corporate travel agencies in the South East (outside of London) of England.
