Bowden & Knights Acquisition


A family run business based in Shadwell, near Thetford, Norfolk, Bowden & Knights specialise predominantly in providing poultry health & hygiene products to the agricultural market. The business will remain under the management and operational structure of Mike Bowden and Sarah & Neville Knights.

Elta Group Chairman David Ball commented: “Mike is going nowhere, neither are Sarah and Neville, they are integral to the growth and development of Bowden & Knights, the very DNA of the business. But above all else, they are passionate about their customers, their company and the agricultural industry.”

The growth and development of Bowden & Knights into new and existing markets is already beginning. They remain an independent brand within the group, operating alongside the other businesses for mutual benefits.

Mike Bowden commented: “The acquisition provides us with the support to achieve some exciting plans, expanding our well-known brand and working side by side with the other group businesses team for reciprocal opportunities.”

David concluded: “We welcome the Bowden & Knights team warmly into the Group and look forward to working with Mike and Sarah to build on the legacy and intrinsic values the two families have created.”
