Parks group set to usher in new growth phase


New expansion plans have been signalled by Park Holidays UK following the announcement to the Intermediate Capital Group plc (ICG).

ICG has acquired the 26-strong parks group from Caledonia Investments plc which has owned Park Holidays UK for the past three years, and steered it through a period of rapid growth.
