We were pleased to act for John Purcaro, Chairman of Joedan Holdings Ltd, in the recent acquisition of the WWS Holdings Ltd group of companies.

WWS Holdings, a Hampshire-based leading manufacturer and distributor of doors and windows, is the parent company of Wessex Window Systems plc. John Purcaro has had a minority shareholding in the company for many years and has worked closely with his co-owners to develop the business.

Joedan Holdings Ltd is one of Gloucestershire’s top 100 companies and a longstanding client of Willans. The parent company of a group engaged in engineering, manufacturing and retailing aluminium-related products, Joedan was founded in 1985 by John and Nicky Purcaro and continues to be owned and run by the Purcaro family.
