The TRAC business will be merged into Eve Trakway, a similar business that A-Plant acquired in 2013. Eve is the UK’s largest supplier of temporary roadways, bridges, fencing and barriers.
TRAC was a family-owned business founded in 1998. It specialises in providing safe vehicle and pedestrian access to construction sites and event venues throughout the UK. Based in Woking, Surrey, the acquisition of TRAC develops Eve’s presence in London and across the southeast.
The TRAC deal follows A-Plant’s acquisition of EIB Event & Infrastructure Branding in December 2014, which now enables Eve to supply staging, gantries, crowd control barriers, mobile grandstands and tiered seating as well as the associated branding materials that are often required at outdoor events. EIB supplied barriers and fencing for the 2014 Tour de France, as well as providing and installing all the event branding at each stadium used for the 2013 Rugby League World Cup.
Eve has doubled its inventory under A-Plant ownership. It now has a temporary trackway fleet-holding in excess of 50,000 panels and opened two new locations in the northwest and the West Midlands.
