TClarke makes strategic move to acquire building management technology specialist

Posted:

TClarke has today announced the acquisition of Eton Associates Limited, a London-based, privately owned control systems specialist offering a variety of Building Management Systems.

This strategic move, building on TClarke’s own substantial range of ICT services and expertise, provides an industry leading capability in the key growth sector of intelligent buildings. It will also give TClarke customers a comprehensive and integrated offering in support of the company’s core M&E service.

An established and highly regarded business that’s well known to TClarke
ETON is well known to TClarke - both have worked alongside each other on a number of high profile projects in our core markets in London.  ETON specialises in installing and maintaining sophisticated building controls systems on complex office buildings.  Recent projects ETON has been involved with include, 20 Fenchurch Street, Chiswick Park, One Canada Square, Bloomberg London, Lacon House and Angel Court.
ETON employs around 80 people and is currently based in London Docklands with a manufacturing plant in Essex.  The intention is to co-locate the operations of ETON at our London Head Office at Moorgate and at our recently opened purpose built manufacturing facility at Stansted.

All of ETON’s engineers are trained in Cylon, Honeywell, Trend & Tridium Building Control Systems (which are the most utilised systems throughout the world). These engineers are supported by dedicated in house Software Design Engineers.

ETON’s current client relationships include:

Canary Wharf Management and Contractors

A significant step in TClarke’s next phase of growth and development

Group CEO, Mark Lawrence was delighted to make the announcement:

ETON have the ethos and quality approach to work that we look for - and we’re now going to integrate them fully into TClarke, co-locating their operations in the TClarke Head Office in Moorgate and their manufacturing operations at our new Fabrication plant at Stansted in Essex.  I am delighted that we have been able to bring them into our Group.

TClarke is committed to leading the market in integrated intelligent buildings services

This is a significant acquisition for our clients and stakeholders to understand. It strengthens our capability to meet client demands for ever more complex building control and management systems. The market demand is there - and it is growing very quickly. Clients need partners who can move quickly alongside them as the buildings services installation becomes more complex and more integral to the value they can deliver from real estate. They need partners who can also stay with them long term and maintain these systems.

This move tells you that TClarke is moving forward at the forefront of technical capability and technology - retaining and building on our market leadership in intelligent buildings.

When you come to TClarke, you get expertise and deep knowledge within a single in-house team. As we move into a new phase of truly intelligent buildings, driven by data and the internet of things, TClarke can deliver the integrated thinking, services and teams that you need in order to build your vision into life.

Our integrated, in-house approach is key to delivering buildability and maximising the value that clients can get, through the whole lifecycle of a building, as they start to imagine and deliver the next generation of intelligent, connected and sustainable buildings.
