Company Announcement - EES Africa (Pty) Ltd, an ISO 9001:2008 certified company which provides management, engineering and auditing services throughout Africa, has announced its acquisition of Rob Anderson & Associates cc. RAA is a Durban-based electrical and security engineering company.
The acquisition will take effect from 1 March 2015
Founding CEO of EES Africa, Bradley Hemphill, says: “In addition to expanding within South Africa EES is also targeting further office expansion into selected African regions where we have already delivered projects. We strive to be Africa’s technology professional service provider of choice.”
Rob Anderson, the founder of RAA 18 years ago, says: “This is a perfect way to continue servicing our clients in the short and medium term whilst ensuring sustainability in the long term. We are excited about being able to deliver more value to existing clients through EES’s national footprint and the other complementary services EES offers.” Anderson will join the board as Executive Director on 1 March 2015.
Hemphill, who founded EES Africa 14 years ago, continues: “This acquisition fits our vision and long term strategy in more ways than we ever imagined. The main drivers for the deal were the geographic significance of an established Durban presence coupled with specific skills in heavy current electrical and physical security.” Hemphill emphasises: “We will now be able to offer the full experience from the electrical transformer to the data point and everything in between.
“Very few private companies have the footprint and specific skills base EES now has. Our advantage is that we are still owner managed with personal involvement in projects. Customers have access to key experienced people, EES can adapt faster than the international competition, and it has as a well established national track record.” The company has carried out projects in 28 African countries to date, and its commitment to become the professional service provider of choice within Africa’s technological industry has never been more clearly focused than now.
