Scottish headquartered engineering group RSE (Ross-shire Engineering) today completed the acquisition of Basingstoke-based W.E.S., specialists in the design and manufacture of chemical dosing solutions for the UK water industry.
The deal will see RSE take up a majority equity share in the business – which is a market leader in the South – whilst retaining the key skills of the W.E.S. management team. The deal – which is the latest in a series of planned acquisitions – represents another move south of the border for Muir of Ord-headquartered RSE, having picked up engineering group ACIEM in March.
The move will further enhance RSE’s presence in the South, consolidating the engineering group’s position as one of the country’s leading specialist water treatment and clean energy solutions provider.
Speaking about the acquisition, RSE Managing Director, Allan Dallas, commented:
All of W.E.S’ 50 staff are based in Basingstoke, Hampshire.
W.E.S. Managing Director Kevin Wheeler welcomed the partnership as a timely support to W.E.S. growth ambitions:
