PTSG was founded by John Foley, Paul Teasdale, Stephen Shipley and Bob Morton in 2007, with the objective of building the UK’s leading niche specialist services provider through a combination of acquisition and organic growth.
Since then, we have grown to become the leading supplier of façade access and fall arrest equipment services, electrical testing, specialist building access and fire solutions.
Our first acquisition was of an access and safety company, National Cradle Maintenance Limited, in 2007, which was funded by £0.9 million of equity from the founders.
All subsequent acquisitions have been funded through debt and internally generated cash flows of the Group.
Whilst we have expanded through acquisition, subsequent organic growth has accounted for approximately half of the increase in total revenues since 2007. Cross selling of services into the respective customer bases of the separate divisions has helped deliver growth and is seen as a key opportunity going forward.
The group’s flotation on AIM in February 2015 capped a remarkable rise since foundation having seen year-on-year growth across all four of our divisions: Access & Safety, Electrical Services, Building Access Specialists and Fire Solutions.
