Byworth Accelerates Growth Through Acquisition of Boiler Engineering Ltd


March 21st 2016 Posted by:

It is with great pleasure that Byworth can announce the acquisition of Annan based Boiler Engineering Limited.

Boiler Engineering have been servicing steam boilers across Scotland and Northern England for over 40 years.

Their Managing Director, Craig Woodman has worked closely with Byworth for many years and the company is a big fan of Byworth’s products.

The acquisition will allow Byworth to enhance their service provision to their existing and new customer base.

Customers will receive increased support with:

  • The combined forces of service engineers from both companies
  • Quicker access to stock and spares and parts for all makes of boilers
  • Quick response to repairs and breakdowns
  • More services on offer
  • Access to more knowledge and advice

Rachel Westerman, Financial Director commented:

“Service is a core part of the business and we recognise that it is an essential benefit to our customers who own, manage and operate industrial boiler systems.

“Industrial boiler customers are increasingly leaning on the expertise of the manufacturers to ensure breakdowns and downtime is kept to an absolute minimum. Relying on the manufacturers takes the responsibility away from owners and operators and is largely the reason for its appeal.”

Craig Woodman, CEO of Boiler Engineering commented:

“I decided to sell to Byworth because they were gradually becoming more and more involved with us. I liked the product and promoted it because I didn’t have any hassle with it. It is of high importance when you’re operating a small sized company to use a supplier’s product with a high reliability so that it doesn’t become a drain on resources.

It was also clear that Byworth were moving forward with new product development. It was good to know I was working with a manufacturer that were interested in modernising their business offerings rather than waiting for component suppliers to update their products. Byworth wanted to innovate.”

Craig will operate as Byworth’s Scottish Operations Manager, where he will manage installation and project work through to completion.

The incorporation of Boiler Engineering into Byworth expands our services to include valve servicing, testing and certification.
