Scottish headquartered engineering group RSE (Ross-shire Engineering) today consolidated its position as one of the UK’s leading specialist water treatment and clean energy solutions providers by completing its second major acquisition in England.
The acquisition – which will enhance RSE’s offering south of the border – has seen the company announce a majority ownership in ACIEM Group, which provides engineering solutions to UK Water Authorities from its facilities near Bath, and in Leeds and Port Talbot in Wales.
