The management buy-out will also enable the BGES leadership team to exploit new opportunities and markets, and forge strategic partnerships with like-minded companies in the technology and energy efficiency sector.

The South Yorkshire-based business, which has roots dating back to 1995 and offices in London and Sheffield, says it plans to concentrate on organic growth, by executing plans to open new sites and increase its geographical reach, as well as expanding its technology offering.

Barber joined the company in 2016 as Managing Director and has led the company’s strategic direction for the past three years. It was under his stewardship that the company has been recognised through multiple industry award wins for its fast-paced growth as well as excellence in the field of building controls.

Dauris has more than 23 years’ experience with the company, working most recently in the position of Head of Projects.  Shaw has been part of the BGES business since the age of 19 in the roles of Bureau engineer, to Project Manager and now Director.

Commenting on the MBO Barber said: “We are very proud to announce our ownership of BG Energy Solutions. Together with Mike Dauris,  Simon Shaw and our carefully selected funders, we believe we have an excellent opportunity to drive the business forward.  The business has grown in the right direction in the last three years, and we are now financially in a very good position to drive forward into the new era.
