New Strategic Acquisition of WES Group

NEW STRATEGIC ACQUISITION BOOSTS SCALE, REACH AND SERVICES FOR INCENTIVE FM GROUP

Incentive FM Group, the leading independent facilities services company, has acquired a third M&E business in a move that will increase the geographical reach, scale and range of its Incentive Tec business. Weston Electrical Services (WES Group) will work as part of the existing Incentive Tec team, bringing the total number of multi skilled mobile engineers the Group now operates to over 140 nationwide with a further 80 site based technicians, and a turnover in excess of £30m from its M&E business. In addition, WES Group also provides a range of specialist fire and security services, including access control and fire systems installation and maintenance, which will be added to the Group’s portfolio of services.

WES Group has a turnover in excess of £10 million and a strong customer base in the retail and prestigious buildings sectors, working with companies such as Travis Perkins, Dunelm, Argos, Lidl and Homebase. It specialises in all aspects of electrical and mechanical contracting and maintenance. This will complement Incentive Tec’s fully comprehensive range of bespoke building, maintenance and project management services.

WES Group founder John Rogers will be retiring after 32 years, however fellow Directors Ian and Linda Rogers will continue to lead the business and will remain along with all existing staff. The company will continue to operate under its own brand name, reporting into Chris Windass, Managing Director at Incentive Tec. The offices in Weston Super Mare will also be retained as the Incentive Group’s new South West base.

Jeremy Waud, Chairman at Incentive FM Group, said:

“The skills and expertise that the team at WES Group brings will complement and strengthen those within Incentive Tec, enabling us to deliver further technical capability, over a greater geographical footprint, with a larger engineering workforce, to both existing and new customers. I have no doubt that they will be a valuable part of the Incentive FM Group as we continue our growth strategy moving forward.”
