Imtech, a UK technical services engineering group jointly owned by EDF and Dalkia, has announced the acquisition of technical engineering services provider, SPIE UK, subject to the fulfilment of customary conditions and regulatory approvals.
Imtech delivers engineering services and decarbonisation solutions for clients in a broad range of sectors, including healthcare, defence, and technology, and operates across the UK through its four areas of expertise: mechanical and electrical engineering, technical facilities management, energy services, and control systems. It says the acquisition will support Dalkia’s 2026 strategy to expand its UK operations, and supports EDF’s commitment to helping more UK organisations achieve a sustainable low-carbon future. It is also aligned with Imtech’s objective to build scale and expand in targeted sectors.
Imtech said: “The acquisition of SPIE UK will complement and enhance our current offering with a range of specialty services in industrial instrumentation, cleanrooms, and life safety solutions. It also supports elements of our 2026 strategy, including increasing turnover with long-term revenue streams, and expanding the business in targeted sectors such as education, industry, and infrastructure. SPIE UK achieved a turnover of £200 m in 2021, and has a dedicated workforce that will add a further 1,800 experienced and customer orientated employees to Imtech.”
Simone Rossi, CEO of EDF Energy (pictured), said: ‘I welcome SPIE UK into the EDF family. This
addition to the Group will provide Imtech with a wider reach to continue supporting its customers’ progress towards Net Zero.’ Rob Goodhew, CEO at SPIE UK, added: “SPIE UK has developed cutting-edge expertise that fully meets the needs of our clients, and joining the operations of Imtech UK is a great opportunity for us to capitalise on our strengths and further develop the business.’
SPIE UK is a subsidiary of the SPIE Group, which claims to be ‘the independent European leader in multi-technical services in energy and communications’, and whose 45,500 staff are ‘committed to achieving energy transition and digital transformation alongside customers’.
