The proposed acquisition by Joseph Ash of W Corbett will be referred for an in-depth phase 2 investigation unless acceptable undertakings are offered. The CMA has found that the proposed acquisition may be expected to result in a substantial lessening of competition in the supply of galvanising services in the West Midlands region around the Corbett galvanising plant in Telford.  Galvanising is a process used to protect steel from corrosion and is an input for a number of products, including products used in infrastructure projects.  Click here.
