Earth Energy, a specialist in the design and installation of ground source heat pumps has acquired Earthwise Scotland of Kemany near Inverurie for an undisclosed sum.
Both businesses specialise in the heat pump installations.
Earthwise Scotland provides geotechnical and installation services to the domestic and commercial sectors of the building industry.
“The acquisition is a real boost to our growth in Scotland”, explained Earth Energy managing director, Brian Kennelly. “We already have a regional manager in Edinburgh, but Scotland is a large country with a huge potential demand for ground source heat pumps so buying a like minded specialist with little geographical overlap made good strategic sense to accelerate Earth Energy's growth north of the border.
'Earthwise employs six people, all of whom will transfer to Earth Energy however we will retain the Earthwise name as the company has a good reputation.'
Earthwise Scotland’s managing director Jonathan Wilson said: “We are delighted to announce this change to our company structure. We have known Earth Energy for several years and are honoured to join the organisation at the forefront of the heat pump industry in UK. This investment will enable us to accelerate our growth and expand our services into social housing and larger construction projects.'
EarthEnergy employs over sixty personnel.
