Incentive Tec expands its capabilities


6 September 2017 | Deborah Shrewsbury


Incentive FM Group, the independent facilities services company, has acquired a third M&E business in a move to 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 multiskilled mobile engineers the group now operates to more than 140 nationwide with another 80 site-based technicians, and a turnover in excess of £30 million from its M&E business.

 

The WES Group also brings a range of specialist fire and security services, including access control and fire systems installation and maintenance, which will be added to the Tec business’s portfolio of services. 

 

WES Group has a turnover in excess of £10 million and a strong customer base in the retail and building 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 complements Incentive Tec’s comprehensive range of bespoke building, maintenance and project management services. 

 

WES Group founder John Rogers will be retiring after 35 years, however, his 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, Incentive Tec’s managing director.

 

Its offices in Weston-Super-Mare will also be retained to become Incentive Group’s South-West base.

 

Jeremy Waud, Incentive FM Group chairman, 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.”
