The move is designed to provide greater warehouse capacity and staffing as part of the company’s ongoing growth in providing logistics solutions to the entertainment industry.
CM Lane is one of the UK’s most established third party logistics companies which was founded in 1974 and operates over 250,000 sq ft of warehousing space in Northampton and Dunstable. Trilogy will move its operations to the Northampton base over the coming months and will retain all CM Lane staff as part of the acquisition.
CM Lane originated within the transport business running a large fleet of vehicles and has strong relationships with Argos. Historically the business has worked within the entertainment business on behalf of toy and entertainment companies.
Matthew Allen, Managing Director of Trilogy said: “We are now working with some of the best names in the entertainment industry and this acquisition will ensure that we can service them effectively with a solid supporting infrastructure. This acquisition not only quadruples the size of our warehouse operation, but it also doubles our head count and creates more opportunity for growth.”
