Bringing Home the Bacon - SPIE Takes a Slice of EE

02 December 2016 | Updated 01 January 1970

SPIE, the M&E engineering, HVAC services, energy and communications company has splashed out and bought not the Everything Everywhere mobile phone operator but Environmental Engineering.

EE specialises in HVAC, mechanical and electrical engineering services within the food and beverage industry. Its expertise ranges from small single-component works to holistic turnkey solutions. The company operates within critical facilities where stringent health and cleanliness criteria are followed. It offers technical design solutions which are both environmentally responsible and sustainable,

A subsidiary of EE, MSS Clean Technology Ltd (MSS) specialises in the design, installation and commissioning of clean technology systems for laboratories and other controlled environments within the pharmaceutical and related sectors.

EE joins SPIE UK’s Industrial Services division, adding further mechanical capability to SPIE UK’s multi-technical services offering which was boosted recently with the acquisition of the Trios Group.

With EE based in Manchester and MSS in York, the acquisition gives SPIE a presence in northern and central England. Combined, EE and MSS achieved a full year March 2016 revenue of approximately £19 million.

Steven Nanda, SPIE UK’s Industrial Services MD, said: “EE’s technological expertise complement us perfectly and their experience in complicated and regulated environments will be a great asset to the SPIE business.”

James Thoden van Velzen, CEO of SPIE UK, said: “The addition of EE to SPIE is a very exciting move for us. Not only does it open a door to new markets, customers and services, it also provides huge scope for growth within very dynamic sectors.”

Guy Fishwick, co-founder of EE alongside Paul Scurrah, added: “This represents the next exciting move and we are thrilled that it will be with a business as well respected as SPIE.”
