Low carbon technology business Ener-G has announced the acquisition of SmartHome Controls (SHC) as part of its ongoing strategic growth programme.
SHC provides services including design, manufacturing, installation and maintenance of intelligent HVAC and lighting control systems, with energy efficiency a main priority.
It will now become part of the Ener-G, with the inclusion intended to enable the company to gain entry to the residential controls market and provide a one-stop-shop for building controls technology and services for all sectors.
The addition will add to its existing design and manufacturing operations of management systems.
Further proof of this was seen in the announcement of a new advanced range of control products intended for launch in the near future,.
Gary Dowsett, director of business development and marketing at Ener-G Controls, will manage the enlarged business, supported by David Fryer, former owner of SHC, who will help to transfer operations and key staff from Uckfield, Sussex, to Ener-G Control’s office in Horsham, Sussex.
Dr Cedric Rodrigues, managing director of Ener-G’s Energy Management Division said: “SHC has a strong customer and installer base, which is important for us to develop the considerable growth opportunities in the fast-expanding residential energy controls sector.
“We will be expanding our activity in both the new-build market as well as the retro-fit and upgrade sector.
“This transaction is part of ENER-G’s ongoing programme of targeted growth and will allow us to benefit from major synergies on a number of levels, including the development of control technology, installation of systems, remote monitoring, and servicing support from our specialist engineers.
“The solutions delivered by SHC to the high-end residential market are directly comparable with our commercial solutions, especially in sectors such as hotels and leisure. I am confident that this acquisition will add significant value to our business.”
