JLA Wraps Up Heating Hat-trick
It’s the time of year where heating is at the top of everyone’s agenda and none more so than for the JLA Group, who have acquired their third heating business in three months.
Newcombustion Engineering Limited, Trinity Heatcare Limited and Ellesmere Group Limited are the latest additions to the growing commercial heating and air-conditioning division of the business.
The three companies, which between them have a headcount of over 100 (55 of which are engineers), cover the Midlands, London, North West and South of England. Combined with Glasgow-based William Whitfield, which joined the JLA Group in May 2018, this extensive expertise and coverage is invaluable to the company’s growing portfolio.
As respected brands in the HVAC industry all three companies complement the current JLA offering, which includes commercial laundry, catering, heating and fire safety to 25,000+ customers across a diverse range of sectors including healthcare, care homes, schools, hotels and social housing.
As the market-leading critical service solutions provider JLA understands the importance of getting it right for customers and credits its success with the industry-leading all-inclusive package, Total Care. This gives customers the high-quality, energy-efficient commercial heating equipment they need alongside full break down cover for a single monthly payment and no upfront cost. There’s also the 365 days a year, 24/7 call out service where a specialist engineer will be on site within 4-hours (the fastest response time in the industry) and a unique guarantee to never leave a customer without heating or hot water, annual gas safety checks and total peace of mind.
Helen Ashton, Chief Executive Officer at JLA said “The acquisition of Trinity Heat Care Limited, Ellesmere Group and Newcombustion in three months is a huge achievement for us. Adding them to the previous acquisition of William Whitfield, the coverage we are now offering across the UK in the HVAC sector is invaluable to growing our already extensive customer base. We’re seeing more and more customers who want that one-stop shop for the critical areas of their business and by building on our own 40+ years of knowledge with the expertise of the acquisition companies, we can offer them just that.”
Matt Armstrong, Managing Director at Ellesmere Group, who will continue to lead the Ellesmere team, said “The team is incredibly excited to have the opportunity to work within the JLA Group. The move will allow us to further develop our existing business, whilst utilising JLA’s structure to grow and identify new business opportunities.”
With over 25,000 customers nationwide across its laundry, catering, heating and fire safety divisions, JLA has become a trusted partner in providing the critical assets which keep businesses up and running. To find out more about the heating system solutions offered click here.
