Knight & Thomas Ltd Electrical Contractors acquired by PAE Group Ltd


Electrical contractors



This well established electrical contractor specialised in the design of technically challenging electrical installations. It was owned by two partners supported by a team of trained electricians and support staff, who worked mostly in commercial and industrial environments.

The business was largely project led-and had strong links with public schools, cathedrals, solicitors, facilities management businesses and the local health authority, the latter through the installation of MRI and cardiology equipment.

BPC were introduced to the senior director and founder, who were keen to retire, by the company’s accountants to support them in the sale. The business was sold within a short period of time and for a good price to a London-based electrical contractor and facilities management business, who were looking to penetrate the South West in this company’s core markets.
