We are proud to become a multi-discipline service provider to the UK housebuilding sector for the first time following our recent acquisition of Worcester based Whites Plumbing Services Ltd (WPS).
Already the UK’s largest service provider into the housebuilding sector, we are pleased to welcome Whites Plumbing Services to the Group in a move that marks a significant stage in our growth development strategy.
Fortified by a long-established presence within the Midlands Region, WPS was founded and built up under the management of Nigel and Sue White and has established an outstanding reputation for sector-leading on-site delivery and service.
In more recent years, Chris White, who will continue as Managing Director, has driven the business to greater heights, and the acquisition paves the way for a further stage of growth. Whites Plumbing Services operates across South West region as well as the Midlands and provides plumbing and heating services to primary house builders.
Our Group Executive Chairman Tony Burke commented: “Whites Plumbing Services represent the absolute ideal for us in terms of our initial move into the P&H sector. They are an extremely well-organised operation that can offer us a platform as we seek to expand our presence in this adjacent trade.”
He added: “Nigel and Chris White have based their operation on outstanding service delivery, and as such the ethos perfectly matches that of the wider Group. We have great expectations and look forward to working closely with the entire team at Whites.”
Meanwhile, on behalf of WPS, Nigel White said: “The business has been in family hands for over half a century, it was essential to me that we picked the right organisation to entrust it to. I have known Tony Burke and key members of his management team for many years and from all of our conversations I know this is the right move for both parties – the future is really exciting.”
We think Whites Plumbing Services will make a great addition to the Group!
