AESL purchased by SSI Services (UK) Ltd

SSI Services UK Ltd has recently completed the purchase of Advanced Engineering Services Ltd (AESL).

SSI Services is the specialist contracting arm of South Staffordshire Plc – a Group that provides a broad range of specialist services from design through to installation, testing and repair to long term maintenance contracts. SSI Services does not trade as a company, instead it operates individual companies within their own specialist business sectors.

The existing SSI Services companies include Fleet Services, OnSite, Hydrosave, Omega Red, G Stow, IWS Water Hygiene, IWS Mechanical/Electrical and Immerse Asset Management.

This acquisition forms part of SSI’s strategy to enter new utility sectors as well as further develop our water services and specialist engineering offering.

AES will continue to run as normal with the business reporting through the existing SSI Services business Hydrosave (UK) Limited.
