Eddisons has acquired Banks Long & Co in a deal that sees the Lincoln-based firm boost Eddisons’ presence in the East of England & the East Midlands.

Established in 1989, Banks Long & Co is a multi-disciplinary firm of consultants & surveyors whose property agency & professional services are highly regarded in its local and regional markets.

Banks Long & Co’s headcount of 38 will now integrate with Leeds-headquartered Eddisons’ existing network of 25 UK offices.

This latest acquisition sees Eddisons reinforce its existing operations in the East of England & East Midlands where it already has offices in Cambridge, Huntingdon, Bury St Edmunds, Peterborough, Kettering & Northampton.

The addition of Banks Long & Co to Eddisons’ operation follows the national consultancy’s acquisition of East Midlands-based firm Budworth Hardcastle last year and its pre-pandemic purchase of the East of England property agency Barker Storey Matthews.

Banks Long & Co director, Tim Bradford, said: “Through our talented team of people, Banks Long & Co has developed a market-leading reputation for delivering quality property advice.

“We are excited to be joining the Eddisons team as there is a natural overlap with the services we offer and an opportunity to work with like-minded individuals.

“This strengthens our proposition to clients and I look forward to developing the opportunities the deal presents.”

Anthony Spencer, Eddisons’ managing director, said: “Banks Long & Co has an excellent regional reputation and I am delighted to welcome their team to Eddisons.

“The acquisition complements our existing strength in the East of England and I look forward to working with Tim and the team to seek opportunities for further growth.”
