Options Management has acquired Hilton Lane Associates Ltd T/a Boxlogix and the company will now be known as Options Management t/a Boxlogix.

Paul Ure, group managing director of Options Management said: “This is a very exciting opportunity for both businesses. Both companies have similar cultures and synergies and share a passion for providing excellent goods and services. The acquisition will see us in a very strong position to continue providing a high standard of service to our clients and enhance our already established company and brand. Options Management will be able to offer Hilton Lane Associates clients a wide range of equipment including coffee systems, fridges and recycling machines tailored for the education and leisure sector

“With the ongoing and inevitable changes within our market, such as the importance of healthy eating and recycling, we are jointly positioned to offer a unique closed loop service for schools, colleges and leisure centres, encouraging the recycling of all cans, bottles and paper cups, which we believe is a powerful and sustainable offering to all our customers.”

The company considers itself to one of the  greenest vending companies in the UK.
