Scorpion acquires LTH
Andover based Shenton Capital Group, which owns Scorpion Power Systems, Merlin Power Management, Powercall UK and Celtaire Air Conditioning Solutions, has announced that it has purchased Lowestoft based LTH Industrial Solutions for an undisclosed sum.
A capital projects business specialising in the delivery of complex power and cooling projects particularly in the defence industry, LTH Industrial Solutions has merged with Scorpion Power Systems and is now trading as Scorpion Power Systems – forming its Technical Services Division.
By acquiring the skills base of LTH Industrial Solutions, Scorpion Power Systems and the other Shenton Group companies are now able to offer an even broader range of capabilities. Through the acquisition, Scorpion Power Systems, which has built its reputation on providing standby and prime power systems for the military, IT, healthcare, commercial and telecoms markets, has added to its footprint in the power market enabling it to meet customer demands for complete end-to-end solutions.
Derek Barry, General Manager at Scorpion Power Systems said: “There has always been great synergy between LTH and Scorpion which has included some very successful joint projects. The acquisition with LTH provides us with new channels to market and enhances our relationship with the expanding power and CHP markets.”
Scorpion Power Systems – Technical Services Division will continue to operate at LTH Industrial Solutions premises in Lowestoft, Suffolk and will be managed by Marcus Dodsworth the previous owner of LTH Industrial Solutions. He says, “LTH has been involved with Scorpion for several years as both a customer and supplier. This merger is a natural progression during a period of growth for both companies. Scorpion is a well-established company and has the ability to sustain large capital projects in many markets. Coupled with our attention to detail and very high class customer care, this makes a winning combination that will take our services to a whole new level.”
