Hyperama sells Nottingham and West Bromwich depots to Dhamecha

Hyperama has announced the sale of its two depots in Nottingham and West Bromwich as the wholesaler’s shedding of assets continues.

Hyperama has sold the two depots to fellow Unitas member Dhamecha Group, coming on the back of the sale of the foodservice-delivered business Tiger Foods to Giro Foods, and its Peterborough site to Holland Bazaar.

The sale of the Nottingham and West Bromwich branches to Dhamecha means Hyperama’s employees, customers and suppliers are left “in good hands” according to Managing Director Marcus Singh (pictured).

“I’m delighted to announce the sale of these two depots to Dhamecha Group, I could not have wished for a better business to acquire the sites and take the business forward,” said Singh.

“Dhamecha is a fantastic operator and has successfully expanded already into the Midlands and I know I’m leaving my employees, customers and suppliers in good hands.

“I would like to take this opportunity to give thanks to God, my parents and grandparents for providing me with this platform and my supportive wife. I’m looking forward now to “turning the page” onto the next chapter of our business development.”

Singh will remain part of the Unitas board thanks to his association with JK Foods East Asian Foods distribution business, with the official transfer of the two Hyperama sites on 14 November.

“This is a great acquisition for Dhamecha Group as they continue with their expansion plans outside of London,” added Unitas Managing Director John Kinney.

“Knowing the Dhamecha business as I do, I know they will be successful in Nottingham and West Bromwich, and this is only good news for the existing customers in the region and our suppliers who work with them, as I expect to see significant growth from these two sites once the Dhamecha team is fully up and running.”
