Media Release: Instalec Technology Group announces acquistion of GES


INSTALEC Technology Group (ITG), one of Scotland’s largest IT solutions providers, has announced the acquisition of Grampian Electrical Services Limited (GES).

Aberdeen based, GES were formed in 2001 and are a multi-disciplined electrical services provider with a wide range of high profile clients from Weatherford and Wood Group to John Lewis plc.

To support the joint venture, directors, Andy Adams and Scott Findlay, will join Duncan Booth, managing director of Instalec Building Support Services (a division of ITG) to drive the combined business forward and provide ITG’s existing client base with a wider portfolio of services.

ITG will retain all GES staff as part of the deal and will be adding to the team as a result of increasing demand for their services.

Commenting on the acquisition, group managing director, Graeme Taylor, said: “This is an exciting time for ITG and in particular Instalec Building Support Services – with Duncan Booth and his extended team having already established an enviable reputation as one of the leading structured cabling providers in Scotland.

“The enhanced services we can now offer through this acquisition, will allow us to help our clients to enjoy a broader variety of complimentary services while benefitting from the same level of professionalism they have come to expect after nearly 30 years in business.

“ITG are very much focused on growth across all our businesses and we are firmly on track to treble our turnover over in the next five years.”

Scott Findlay added:  “I think the timing is ideal – having spent 10 years with Andy Adams and the team building GES into the customer focused organisation it is today, I think we are a great fit for ITG and very much look forward to adding our experience and expertise to an already impressive portfolio of clients.

“GES is a recognised innovator and market-leader with extensive track record in high profile implementations in environments such as commercial and public sector office buildings, data centres and retail.”
