Poise Group is a design consultancy specialising in major infrastructure projects across a diverse range of sectors including rail, civil engineering, and electric vehicle charging.

Founded in 1889, BRUSH is the leading independent provider of equipment, services and solutions for electrical power generation and distribution and is the world's largest independent manufacturer of generators above 20MVA. BRUSH's products are used across a wide range of end markets, including utilities, industrial, maritime, rail, data centres and renewable applications.

The acquisition further accelerates the growth of BRUSH and will enable Poise’s unique design skills in EV charging and traction to complement BRUSH’s delivery capabilities.

The partnership also gives BRUSH a huge opportunity to access new markets, add expertise in different areas such as civil engineering, and offer turnkey EV solutions to customers.

Nicolas Pitrat, BRUSH Group CEO, explained the importance of the acquisition: “The lower-cost, zero-carbon electrification of our infrastructure is one of the biggest challenges our industry faces. It requires new, agile and adaptive engineering solutions, and the acquisition of Poise Group adds specialist engineering expertise to BRUSH, enabling us to support the transitioning of the electrical infrastructure in the UK.”

Poise’s joint MDs, Prem Hari and Rajiv Agrawal, were equally positive about the benefits the acquisition will bring, saying:

“We are delighted to add our railway electrification and engineering expertise to the BRUSH Group. Together, we’ll be better positioned to address the challenges our electrical infrastructure faces by providing engineering solutions for complex decarbonisation projects, including the EV charging and traction segments.”
