RSK Group is expanding its existing mechanical and engineering (M&E) provision through the acquisition of East Anglia, UK-based firm Ceetech.
Ceetech designs, specifies, installs and maintains infrastructure for a wide range of public-and private-sector clients including hospitals and education, leisure, retail, industrial, custodial and military facilities. The company has a solid reputation for engineering excellence,
Established in 2001, the firm employs a strong team of about 70 people and has a variety of multi-million-pound design-and-build projects on its books.
RSK will be able to expand its existing M&E provision by leveraging Ceetech’s expertise. By combining this with the experience of RSK’s existing consulting engineering practice, Silcock Leedham, the group will be able to provide a full M&E design-and-delivery capability in-house.
Kerry Briggs will continue to head the business as the managing director and will be supported by the existing management team as the business joins RSK’s Geosciences and Engineering division under the direction of Divisional Director George Tuckwell.
“These are really exciting times for Ceetech,” stated Kerry. “Everyone has worked very hard over the last 21 years to build a company with an enviable reputation for being user-friendly and delivering quality workmanship from design, through installation to ongoing maintenance; and, with the support of RSK, we can build on this.
“RSK’s values fit very well with those of Ceetech. We both build our businesses around our people and supply-chain partners.
“I am personally very excited to be continuing in my role to lead Ceetech over the coming years,” he added.
Alan Ryder, founder and CEO of RSK, said, “I am delighted to welcome the team at Ceetech into the group.
“With the addition of Ceetech, RSK companies can now deliver a full M&E design and delivery capability in-house. I believe this will create a multitude of new opportunities, particularly as we provide a turnkey M&E service to our clients, all the way from design to delivery.
“Ceetech is a business that has been built around its people and I look forward to supporting them as they help to take the business from strength to strength,” he added.
