On behalf of the board Group Managing Director Andrew Mazey has confirmed the takeover and acquisition of a successful Manchester based installation and maintainance company.

Speaking today Andrew said:

“Following six months of negotiations with a valuation and deal being finalised, I’m delighted that the acquisition is now in its final stages. Having worked overtime on this deal personally with the vision of adding a third profitable and sucessful business to our group I’m absolutely delighted we are now in the closing stages of this process.

For the last six weeks we’ve had one of our team working closely on a daily basis with the outgoing Managing Director and we officially take control of the business which has traded sucessfully since 1998 on December 12th.

This takeover and significant cash investment we have made to facilitate the acquisition should further demonstrate that we remain focussed and committed to developing and growing the three individual companies within the group and ofcourse the group as a whole. I’m delighted to be bringing further employment and opportunities to the community where i live and which we operate”

A full announcement and local and trade press releases will be made in the coming fortnight.

We have worked hard at identifying our core values and we recognise that we have a role to play in ensuring not only the economic but also the wider environmental and social well-being of the communities where we work.


Legionella Risk Assessments In Student Accommodation

The recent changes to Legionella legislation has moved several of the large student accommodation providers in the student hotspots of Manchester, Liverpool and Sheffield to reconsider the qualifications and level of experience of their Legionella risk assessment providers.

This in turn has seen a significant upturn in the BSFM workload, providing friendly , realistic, competent and reliable Legionella risk assessment advice to the Student, Residential, and Commercial lettings industry.

”It is important for landlords and managing agents to consider an assessors qualifications, also their level of experience in the industry. The assessor should not only have the practical and theoretical knowledge to conduct the assessment, but also a history of undertaking on-site inspections and generating a compliant report.”

Commitment to Apprenticeships

Commitment to Apprenticeships | S R Waite Group

S R Waite Group considers training to be an essential and integral part of our long-term strategy, of which apprentice training is probably the highest priority.  We have consistently demonstrated our commitment by employing 1 / 2 new apprentices each year over a 10-15 year period. Most of which are sourced from schools in the Leigh / North West Area.  Apprentice training is carried out jointly by ourselves and the local colleges and having had a long standing relationship with Wigan & Leigh we have recently joined up with Manchester college to enrol the latest of our electrical division apprentices.

CHAS Accreditation

We are delighted to announce that we have successfully navigated the qualification process and once again been granted CHAS Accreditation for the next 12 months.

We find each annual qualification process extremely helpful as it raises our awareness to issues we need to address or shortfalls that require implementing.  These items are discussed in management meetings between Operations Staff, Contracts Managers and Directors and the topics of discussion are raised and implemented within the Company.

We feel the CHAS recognition is widely acknowledged across the construction industry and is a must for any reputable contractor.

S R Waite Group sponser ‘unbeatable’ world record achievement.

Manchester based Digital marketing agent Tecmarks managing director Richard Heyes is pictured presenting S R Waite Group managing director Andy Mazey with the flag he and Rugby League legend Lee Briers celebrated with after overcoming a grueling five-day ascent of Mt Kilimanjaro and helping to set an ‘unbeatable’ world record.

Heyes swapped the safety of Tecmark’s Manchester offices for a spot on the Tanzanian mountain as part of a group including former rugby league internationals Adrian Morley and Lee Briers raising funds for the Steve Prescott Foundation, which support’s Manchester’s Christie Hospital.

Mt Kilimanjaro stands at 5,895 metres and is usually climbed over nine days.
The climbers also set a new world world record by staging the highest ever competitive rugby league fixture on their descent. The trip’s organisers believe there is no other location worldwide where the record could be broken.

Group MD Andy Mazey said: “ It was great to catch up with Richard today and hear all about the challenge. One can only imagine how tough this must have been for all concerned and it is a fantastic achievement which has raised many thousands of pounds for charity. To be associated as a sponser gives everyone at SRW a sense of enormous pride. Well done guys and thanks for the signed flag it is appreciated”
