Wolseley UK expands with Jointing Technologies acquisition

Builders’ merchant Wolseley UK has expanded its portfolio of companies with the acquisition of the Jointing Technologies group.

Warwick-based Wolseley has completed the undisclosed deal through its Wolseley Infrastructure division which is a distributor to civils and utilities sectors via the Burdens and Fusion Utilities brands.

Jointing Technologies specialises in the distribution of power cable and accessories as well as electrical trace heating systems in the UK and operates from sites in Norton Canes in Staffordshire, Bristol and Woking in Surrey.

Wolseley said the acquisition would help it capitalise on the growth potential in the electricity market as it evolved.

All brands will be retained along with all existing sites and personnel as part of the deal.
