London based Win That Bid, one of the UK’s leading bid-management firms, has announced their merger with tender and procurement specialists Thornton & Lowe, with offices in Greater Manchester, Central Scotland, North East and West Midlands, to further strengthen its position as the industry leader in the bidding and tendering arena.

Following extensive discussions between Directors from both businesses, the merger, will see Win That Bid remain in its current location, continuing to serve the capital and southern counties, but will operate as a division of the Thornton & Lowe group of companies.

Both Win That Bid and Thornton & Lowe, have built strong reputations as two of the leading providers of bid-management services, as well as strong commercial foundations, which will no doubt make the new entity, the envy of its competitors.

Director, Dave Thornton, was excited with the merger as well as what the future holds. He said: “Since Thornton & Lowe opened its doors, we have aimed to build a business that is both strong in foundation and ethics, but ambitious with its strategy for expansion.

“We already have a significant client base in the South, but wanted to make sure that we had a visual presence in the capital, to complement our regional offices in Greater Manchester, Central Scotland, Birmingham and the North East. Merging with Win That Bid is the logical next step to continue the natural evolution of our business.

“As a team of in-house bid and business-management professionals, we pride ourselves on our exceptional service, and we’re very much looking forward to the next chapter of our exciting story!”

Since 2009 Thornton & Lowe and its team continue to guide both SME and blue-chip clients through the tender process, giving them the opportunity to maximise success rates and stay one step ahead of the competition. Part of the Thornton & Lowe family of businesses also includes a business development division, M&D, as well as their training and education arm, Thinking to Success.

Sarah Green, Director of Win That Bid said: “We are overjoyed that we have merged with Thornton & Lowe. The future in our industry is a bright one, and we are confident we are able to offer a consistent, and truely outstanding service to all our clients.”
