Business description

The company specialises in the provision of utilities replacement services as part of a long-running contract with a major utilities company, providing specialist solutions for sites based across England.

Utilising a dedicated, multidisciplinary team and a range of state-of-the-art equipment, the company manages 90% of projects entirely using in-house
facilities, and is renowned within its industry for its fairness to both employees and subcontractors, as well as the sustained quality of its work and its ability to consistently achieve its client’s targets.

The company has secured a framework contract that will remain in place until 2026, with a possible extension until 2028, and possesses the management,
resources and skill set to expand and deliver other utilities works, including water and cable, which could support further expansion in the future.

Our clients are now offering the company for sale as they are seeking a change in lifestyle and believe that the business could continue to expand under an enthusiastic owner.
