Today two hugely respected firms, embedded in the North East Lincolnshire business community announce their merger, to the delight of their clients and considerable economic benefit of the region.

Blow Abbott Chartered Accountants will merge with A P Robinson & Co Chartered Accountants to form one larger organisation. The new firm will be known as ‘A P Robinson & Co Chartered Accountants and Business Advisors, Incorporating Blow Abbott’.

All clients will continue with their current contacts, and the new organisation will provide greater scope for career advancement from entry level positions, into management tiers. The new firm is expected to be at the forefront of technological progress and offer clients an ever broader portfolio of services to support, guide and grow their business and profit.

The new organisation will see all Blow Abbott staff blended into the ‘head office’, established at the iconic Grade II listed A P Robinson & Co building; Lincoln Bank Chambers in Cleethorpe Road, Grimsby.

Andrew Robinson, Managing Partner at A P Robinson & Co said; “I undertook my post-qualification training as a young accountant with Blow Abbott and established my company retaining many of the principles and ethics taught to me there. In particular, lessons in client service, embracing positive change, and valuing personnel have stayed with me throughout the first 25 years of A P Robinson & Co. You can only imagine therefore, my pride and delight as we unite these two great firms, exceptional employees and valued regional and national clients.”

“We are so excited to join with A P Robinson & Co” said Blow Abbott Director, Elliot Beaumont. “My Grandfather, Denis Blow established this firm over 50 years ago. This merger will take it into the next chapter. As the finance industry implements ever more streamlined systems, technological advancements and opportunities to support client business, our new organisation will be future proofed and ready to seize every opportunity.” He concluded.
