Northumbrian Property Services Group (NPSG) was set up to develop a network of property services companies across the north of England and southern Scotland.
Our first acquisition was J P Westall Limited of Hexham in July 2015. Westalls was established in the 1930s and is widely accepted to be the premier firm of plumbing and heating engineers in the Tyne Valley - indeed it has been responsible for work in most of the more prestigious properties along the valley at some point during the past 80 years. Its' client list is an impressive 'who's who' of many of the more recognisable and successful businesspeople, TV personalities and sportspeople in the region.
Westalls was acquired by NPSG in July 2015 with all existing staff being retained, and Philip and Peter Westall remained with the business for a period before enjoying a well-earned retirement - indeed Philip still helps out from time to time to ensure continuity for customers, and to help ensure that the business continues to grow under its new ownership.
In January 2018 we acquired R Arnott & Sons Limited of Cramlington. Arnotts was established in 1962 by Ralph Arnott and over the past 45 years the company has established an enviable reputation for the quality of the work it has carried out for a range of commercial and public sector clients.
Ralph’s sons Ken and Trevor took over the running of the business in 1988 and Trevor remains with the business to ensure the smooth transition - and to pass on his considerable wealth of experience in estimating complex and high-value projects.
In September 2018 we were delighted to add R F Henderson to the NPSG stable. Hendersons began life in the 1970s as a domestic heating and plumbing business but has evolved into a national commercial mechanical contractor with a blue-chip customer base and a reputation for being capable of taking on projects of any scale and delivering them professionally, and on time.
Nik Smith will continue to lead the business as we look to further extend its geographical base and expand its activities into new markets. Working closely with our other group companies, Hendersons now has access to additional resource and experience to help it realise ambitious growth plans.
And in late 2019 we opened the doors to our prestigious new showroom in Ponteland. Stonebridge Interiors offers turnkey design and installation of the highest-quality kitchens and bathrooms available anywhere in the world - from kitchens with the royal warrant to bathrooms from Armani, quality which used to be the preserve of London is now available to the North East of England.
We are now embarking on the next phase of growth - both through developing the existing businesses and further acquisitions and would be interested in talking to electrical and mechanical contractors around the north east of England and southern Scotland. Our ideal acquisition would be a company turning over well in excess of £1M and with a dedicated and experienced workforce, preferably with some management or supervisory staff who would remain with the business post-acquisition.
If you own a business which operates in the area described above, and in the electrical, mechanical, heating or plumbing sector, we would be interested in having a chat to see whether your business would be a good fit for NPSG.
And if you are worried about what might happen to your staff, customers, or business name were we to acquire your business then we would be happy to invite you to Westalls to see what happened there - all staff remained with the business, the company name and heritage have been carefully preserved and customers see no practical difference in the service they receive. We have invested heavily in staff training, upgrading the fleet, adding to the team of engineers, and in new computerised systems to improve the service level we can provide to customers.
