Two into one for compliance services

15 July 2010

PHS Group has launched PHS Compliance formed from the merger of two of its companies - Epsilon Test Services and CLM Compliance

Epsilon Test Services (acquired April 2008) and CLM Compliance (acquired March 2010) have combined to form PHS Compliance to offer services for electricity, gas, fire and lighting. In each of these disciplines, the company will focus on legislative and ACOPs (Approved Codes of Practice) compliance including safety inspection, testing, remedial repair work, planned maintenance and emergency repairs required to meet individual customer needs.
The former MD of  Epsilon, Tim Beardsmore is appointed as commercial director of PHS Compliance while the former CLM MD, Paul Caddick, becomes operations and technical director.
Explaining the rationale for the new company, PHS Group chief executive, Peter Cohen, commented, “From a client’s point of view this creates one point of contact and one route to achieving their legislative safety compliance, whatever the specific needs of their site or sites. This makes great sense in terms of cost-efficiency and streamlines the process in a singularly tailored approach.”
The new PHS company will provide a national network of more than 500 safety engineers operating from Warrington, Gloucester, Hull, Aberdeen, Larne, London and Glasgow. Expertise within this workforce will include both specialists in specifics, such as electrical safety, and also multi-skilled engineers who are qualified to deliver services for more than one of the disciplines the company now covers, from electricity and gas to fire and lighting.
Paul Caddick said, “Together we bring over 20 years of experience and market-leading technical expertise to this alliance with an enviable reputation for great customer service and innovation. We plan to create an unbeatable force for excellence in workplace compliance provision.”
Tim Beardsmore commented, “There is nothing out there to match the scope and specialism of PHS Compliance. We are very excited about this launch and look forward to demonstrating how compliance is most intelligently dealt with by addressing all disciplines with one complete service.”
