West Yorkshire Business Announces Acquisition of Two Sheffield-Based Businesses

Premier Technical Services Group PLC (PTSG), a listed niche specialist services provider, has acquired Sheffield-based businesses Access Contracting and Lightening Protection Testing (LPT) as part of ongoing expansion plans.

The double deal will see Access Contracting, a specialist in the maintenance, inspection, testing, repair and installation of permanent façade access equipment and fall arrest systems, integrated within PTSG’s Access and Safety Division and LPT into PTSG’s Electrical Services Division.

Nick Hayes, a joint-vendor of both Access and LPT - a tester, repairer and maintainer of lightning protection and earthing systems – is expected to remain with the group.

PTSG chief executive Paul Teasdale said: "Both businesses are well established and respected in the UK and their addition to the group will further increase our market share in their respective specialisms.

"We have always considered Access Contracting to be an excellent business with a first class team of people. We look forward to working with Nick Hayes and his colleagues on growing the business and expanding the group's activities in these key areas."

Earlier this year the Castleford-based business also announced the acquisition of Pendrich Height Services Ltd and NATHS Ltd - steeplejack, rope access and working at height companies based in Edinburgh, Scotland.
