Premier Technical Services Group Ltd (PTSG) has acquired Flame Control, a large fire solutions firm that operates across the Netherlands.

Flame Control, which is based in the municipality of Harderwijk, specialises in fire alarm systems, first aid, evacuation, extinguishing systems and extinguishing agents. With a team of 40 specialists, the company works extensively across the Netherlands, seven days a week to improve fire safety in businesses and residential properties.

Paul Teasdale, Executive Chairman at PTSG, said: “We are thrilled to announce a significant milestone in the ongoing growth of PTSG as we embark on our first overseas acquisition. This strategic move represents a major step forward in our expansion efforts and underscores our commitment to creating an even stronger platform for growth. It aligns seamlessly with our long-term strategic vision and allows us to expand our market reach into Europe as well as offering our other services in a wider geographic context.”   

PTSG works on buildings in all industry sectors nationwide and overseas to keep them fully operational, accessible, safe and compliant. The company’s specialist services solutions include (but are not limited to) façade access and fall arrest equipment, lightning protection testing and electrical compliance, building access cleaning and maintenance, fire and security solutions and water hygiene and treatment.

Nikhil Varty, Chief Executive at PTSG, said: “Through our 2,700 highly trained people, we are committed to maintaining the highest standards of safety, quality, technological innovation and customer service. The addition of Flame Control to our fire solutions portfolio further reinforces our growth ambitions as we aim to deliver excellence in all aspects of our business.”   

PTSG Netherlands will be overseen by Flame Control’s founder and CEO, Rodny Bosma, who believes that the collaboration is ‘a smart first move into Europe by PTSG,’ with legislative systems and requirements being very similar and in a country that has a population of more than 17 million people of which up to 93% speak English. As part of the deal, Rodny has invested back into the newly formed business and is charged with driving the company’s growth in the Netherlands, across Europe and in the Nordic regions.

Nikhil concluded: “We extend a very ‘warm welkom’ to Rodny and his very talented team and we look forward to collaborating closely with them as we embark on this exciting journey. Together, we are poised to achieve new heights of success, keeping people safe as well as creating unparalleled value for our customers, our people and our stakeholders.

“We express our gratitude to all who have contributed to this milestone achievement and remain committed to driving sustainable growth and success in the years ahead.”
