EA-RS Group has so far acquired 5 Fire and Security businesses, 4 of which have been acquired during the past year with the support of Rockpool Investments and RCL.
Rockpool’s acquisition funding has provided EA-RS Group with the resources to continue to execute our impressive growth strategy through bolt-on acquisitions, as well as organic growth.
Circum was the Group’s first acquisition in 2019, prior to joining forces with Rockpool Investments in 2021. Since then, EA-RS Group has gone on to acquire CCSS Fire & Security, AST, Crane Communications, and UK Security Doors; as well as securing the trade and assets of Essex Fire Sprinklers, all during 2021.
Over the course of the past year, it has been an absolute pleasure working with Guy Ellis, Will Beckett, Toby Hurdle, and Andrew Aylwin, and we want to take this opportunity to thank them for their professionalism and expertise in successfully guiding us through our various acquisitions. We are presently in discussion with several other Fire and Security businesses and are excited to continue this journey with Rockpool and RCL by our side.
Alan Wheal, CEO of EA-RS Group, said, “As a business, we are very fortunate to be able to employ some of the leading fire engineering professionals in the market that help us to drive a culture of engineering excellence that sets us apart. Working in partnership with Rockpool Investments has helped us to continue our buy-and-build strategy, so providing a home for like-minded fire engineering businesses that share our ethos, and have customer service at their core. We are excited about the acquisitions we have lined up and are delighted to have Rockpool support us on this journey.”
We remain committed to our growth strategy, so if you are interested in selling in the near future, we would welcome the opportunity to discuss your options further, so please feel free to get in touch to begin a conversation. Talking with us is 100% confidential, we are friendly and approachable, and will always look to retain your staff and maintain the name and reputation you have developed.
