Operating through four divisions, Access & Safety, Electrical Services, Building Access Specialists and Fire Solutions, the Group provides highly-engineered industrial products and quality services and has a substantial presence in a number of niche markets.
PTSG provides a central information service for its businesses and champions the dissemination of key information and best practice. PTSG unites its constituent businesses under one clear identity, which supports smarter working and delivers top class service to its customers.
Headquartered in Castleford, West Yorkshire, the Group employs around 1,200 people across 31 UK sites, who service more than 180,000 buildings across the whole of the UK for over 20,000 customers in a wide range of industries.
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.
The 27 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 has experienced a remarkable rise since its foundation, with year-on-year growth across all four of its divisions: Access & Safety, Electrical Services, Specialist Building Access and Fire Solutions.
Our vision is to become the standard against which other similar companies are measured. We exist to serve our customers by delivering consistently excellent products and services into specialist markets – products and services that can be safely relied upon at all times.
PTSG is based on delivering an exceptional service to customers on every occasion – ‘Man in a Van’ engineered solutions. Professionalism and delivery is the key driver which means customer retention remains high while new relationships are formed almost daily.
