Another acquisition for the British Engineering Services Group!

The British Engineering Services Group has completed its third acquisition this year, taking the total number of new businesses to join the Group to eight since 2019.

XEIAD, specialist engineering inspection consultancy with expertise in specialist access, is the most recent company to join the Group.

The XEIAD team is made up of more than 200 people all working across a number of sectors including transportation, utilities, renewables and many, many more, inspecting structures such as bridges, culverts, retaining walls, tunnels and shafts.  Their engineers are skilled and experienced in rope access, diving and confined spaces and complete a huge range of Inspections, Assessments, Surveys, Non-Destructive Testing & Intrusive Investigations, Design and Project Management, helping make sure their customers leave nothing to chance.

XEIAD will enhance the growing Group’s industry leading suite of risk management services and grow their fantastic team of specialists.

Paul Capener, XEIAD Managing Director, will continue to lead the team, who are spread across offices in Devon, York, Swindon and Derby and at customer locations all over the UK.

“It’s been very obvious that XEIAD and the British Engineering Services Group share the same behaviours and culture in the approach to their team and customers since we started talking several months ago.  This is extremely important to both companies and has helped make the decision to join the Group an easy one.  For us all here at XEIAD, joining such a fantastic business will support our ongoing growth and allow us to offer our customers even more critical asset and risk management services.  This is great news all round!” said Paul Capener.

“As we continue to add new businesses to the British Engineering Services Group, our priorities remain the same.  We’re focused on welcoming companies that support our risk management agenda, enhance the services we can offer our customers and, most importantly, mirror our people focused culture. XEIAD fits this approach perfectly, their team are the very best at what they do, and we’re excited to get to know them over the coming months,” said Paul Hirst, Chief Operating Officer for the British Engineering Services Group.
