Denne bought


Dutch firm Heijmans has bought Kent contractor Denne Construction in a deal worth up to £17 million. Denne will become part of Leadbitter, which Heijmans snapped up in 2003. A spokesman for Heijmans said it was looking for more acquisitions and added: 'The British Government is investing a lot in social housing, so this is an interesting market.' Denne will continue to trade under its own name and the firm's 136 staff will be kept on.
