EA-RS Group makes 12th acquisition

EA-RS Group, a provider of intelligent, sustainable, compliant fire and security systems and services, that is backed by the Richardson family business alongside Rockpool Investments, has confirmed that Bonnell’s Electrical Contractors Limited (Bonnell’s), a leading business offering high quality electrical and fire safety solutions, has joined the Group.

Bonnell’s is the twelfth company EA-RS Group has acquired since February 2021, following the successful acquisitions of CCSS Fire & Security, AST London, UK Fire & Security Doors, Crane Communications, Firesec Compliance, Air Projects, Essex Fire Sprinklers, Vulcan Fire, APW Fire, Positive Control, and Surefire Services.

Established in 1979, Bonnell’s have grown to become a leading innovator in the electrical and fire safety services industry. The team at Bonnell’s have developed and maintained their longstanding and strong client relationships by providing exceptional service delivery, from the design, installation, maintenance and testing of fire alarm systems; fire extinguishers; and dry risers.

Their customers are well supported by a multiskilled engineer base of seven electricians and three apprentices that are able to maintain various types of fire, smoke control and electric systems. This strong client base is a credit to their leading reputation and exceptional service offering.

This new addition into the EA-RS Group provides many new and exciting opportunities for both Bonnell’s and EA-RS’s existing clients, supporting plans to expand social housing and local authority service delivery across the UK. It also further propels EA-RS towards a stated goal of achieving a 'One Solution Offering' across the whole of the UK and Ireland.

Alan Wheal, CEO of EA-RS Group said:

“The addition of Bonnell’s into EA-RS Group presents a range of new and exciting opportunities, and we warmly welcome the team into the group.

Bonnell’s will be a great asset, and this acquisition further contributes to our growth strategy through cross selling synergies and specialist service delivery, particularly with our social housing work. Welcome to the team!”

Chris Taylor, Director of Bonnell’s said:

“This next phase of growth as part of EA-RS Group presents many positive and exciting opportunities for Bonnell’s.

We eagerly look forward to learning more about the other group businesses and what they can offer our customers, as well as how we can support the group’s existing clients in this exciting next stage for Bonnell’s.”
