Buckingham advises The Co-operative Group

The Co-operative Group (tCG) is the UK’s largest mutual business, owned by over six million consumers. It is the UK’s fifth biggest food retailer, the leading convenience store operator and a major financial services provider.

Sunwin Services Group is a wholly owned subsidiary of tCG and its Fire Detection & Electronic Security Division provides a multi faceted design, installation and maintenance service tailored for any business size.

Buckingham initiated the transaction and advised tCG on the sale of Sunwin Fire and Security to Kings Security Systems.

Kings Security Systems, based in Bradford, West Yorkshire, provide an extensive range of retail loss prevention and commercial security systems to the UK market and have a wealth of experience within this specialist industry.

Buckingham’s team was led by Mike Simson and supported by James Pettifer. They worked alongside law firm Pinsent Masons.
