The deal will see RSE take up a majority equity share in the business whilst retaining the key skills of the Saftronics Management Team.

Saftronics Managing Director, Mark Godfrey, commented on the deal: “We are thrilled to become part of the RSE group. Having worked very closely with RSE for many years, the integration represents a truly great fit for Saftronics and will enable both RSE and ourselves to provide a much more enhanced offering to our customers than ever before.”

RSE Managing Director, Allan Dallas, added: “We are delighted to welcome Saftronics into the RSE group of businesses. We have worked extensively with the company and staff over a number of years and they will complement our services and growth strategy. Their focus on quality and innovation are a natural fit to what RSE are about as a company.”
