SPIE UK is one of the top M&E firms in the country

It offers a range of speciality services in industrial instrumentations, clean rooms and life safety solutions – according to Imtech, the deal helps it toward its goal of expanding business in targeted sectors such as education, industry and infrastructure. 

Imtech, which is jointly owned by EDF and Dalkia, paid a total £43.4m for the firm, which will add a further 1,800 employees to its existing 2,100. 

Rob Goodhew, chief executive at SPIE UK Ltd, said the firm “developed cutting-edge expertise” and that joining Imtech was a “great opportunity for us to capitalise on our strengths and further develop the business”. 

Imtech chief executive Gautier Jacob, Simone Rossi, chief executive of EDF Energy, Sylvie Jéhanno, chair and chief executive of Dalkia welcomed the company. 

The deal will allow EDF to support its customers’ progress toward net zero, while Dalkia’s Jéhanno said the acquisition aligned with their strategic objective to expand its UK operations.
