Acquisition Boosts Mitie Telecom Capability

Company News, EMEA, Telecomms, Service Provider News, Mergers & Acquisitions, United Kingdom

Mitie has acquired DAEL Ventures UK, together with its subsidiaries DAEL Telecom, JB Towers and JISTICS for £15 million.

 

DAEL Ventures is the UK arm of DAEL Netherlands, a leading provider of acquisition, design and construction (ADC) services for telecoms infrastructure.

 

With a team of around 130 the company provides telecoms solutions for multiple customers, building, upgrading, optimising, and maintaining cell sites throughout the UK.

 

Alongside ADC services, the business also provides specialist managed services of temporary mobile infrastructure to support the special events market, as well as bespoke structural engineering and design services for telecoms assets. DAEL Ventures UK has an unrivalled reputation for design capability and innovative solutions; particularly for building sites in remote and complex locations such as the highland and island of Scotland and remote locations of England and Wales.

 

Mitie already provides maintenance and engineering services for 20,000 telecoms assets across the UK and Ireland. Using its cutting-edge technology, Mitie is implementing technology solutions and innovations to make processes more efficient as well as reducing environmental impact, such as optimising planned maintenance and reducing the number of engineer visits or ‘truck rolls’ to sites.

 

DAEL’s design and installation experience coupled with Mitie’s leading technology and scale will provide an end-to-end service for the telecoms industry, from mast design right though to decommissioning as the United Kingdom gears up to establish a full 5G network over the next 3 to 5 years which requires upgrading the existing mast network.

 

Andy Train, Managing Director, DAEL Telecom, and James Brennan, Managing Director, JB Towers, will join Mitie’s Technical Services business to create a new Mitie Telecoms division.

 

Carlo Alloni, Managing Director, Technical Services and Integrated Facilities Management, Mitie, comments: "With the acquisition of DAEL Ventures UK we are broadening and deepening our telecoms offering which will benefit both our customers and the UK and Ireland’s wider mobile network as we support the rollout of 5G."

 

DAEL Netherlands will continue under the same private ownership and is not part of the transaction.
