Servest Swoops on Llewellyn Smith

18 August 2015 | Updated 01 January 1970

FM service provider Servest has bought the energy efficiency business Llewellyn Smith to expand its energy management provision presence.

The purchase is seen as a ‘strategic fit’ as Llewellyn Smith is a major player in providing compliance and consultancy services in both the commercial and domestic markets.

This includes the big six utility companies and energy efficiency installers within the Energy Companies Obligation (ECO) initiative.

Llewellyn Smith is also a lead assessor for the Environment Agency sponsored Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) which is designed to assist companies with greater than 250 employees and/or a turnover in excess of £38 million to achieve mandatory energy audit requirements.

Llewellyn Smith’s aims to improve the energy efficiency of commercial and domestic properties and help to reduce the effects of climate change. The company was founded in 2002 and in 13 years of trading, Llewellyn Smith claims it has never lost a customer and has retained all existing contracts.

Servest and Llewellyn Smith are no strangers to one another, having been working together on a number of ventures over the past six months.

Rob Legge, Group CEO UK and Europe, Servest, commented on the acquisition: “This enables us to offer additional energy services and expertise to clients. It will ultimately help clients to further reduce their carbon footprint, save money and improve their sustainable and environmental credentials.”

David Llewellyn, Group CEO, Llewellyn Smith and the senior management team, will remain in place to continue the strategy and growth of Servest’s energy management division. “This is a very exciting opportunity for Llewellyn Smith and its employees, he commented. “This will offer a greater array of services to our customers and will provide opportunities for personal development to our employees.”
