Benchmark International is pleased to announce the sale of Cheshire-based Survey Systems to Suffolk-based Survey Solutions.
Survey Systems was formed in 1983 and is a geomatic surveying firm producing accurate 2D and 3D digital plans and models for both public and private clients operating in the construction and engineering sectors. Along with sister company Locate Surveys, the company has grown to become one of the largest independent surveying companies in the north west, employing approximately 40 people.
Established for over 20 years, Survey Solutions is the UK’s largest engineering surveyor with a wide geographical reach and a comprehensive range of surveying services. The company provides to sectors ranging from residential new build to retail, energy to education and transport to healthcare.
As a result of the acquisition, Survey Solutions has broadened its geographical presence, giving the company an unrivalled presence throughout the UK and enabling local teams to respond quickly to project enquiries. Along with acquisition of Kempston Surveys, Survey Solutions’ national reach has now grown to nine offices and the team has grown to around 160 employees.
James Cooper, CEO of Survey Solutions said: “I am delighted and proud to welcome both Survey Systems and Kempston Surveys to our company. Our growth strategy has always been to focus on surveying companies which share our company ethos and who can help us grow our national presence.
“Both these businesses are established and respected, with excellent teams of professionals and are a perfect fit in terms of expanding our operations. I am looking forward to working closely with them both in the future.”
Commenting on working with Benchmark International, Simon Scragg, Director at Survey Systems said: “James Sloane was patient when necessary and positively relentless when needed - a true professional at all times and a pleasure to work with. Thank you to James and all the team at Benchmark.”
On behalf of everyone at Benchmark International, we would like to wish both parties all the best for the future.
