HomeServe UK acquires Hereford Heating

HomeServe UK has announced the acquisition of a Herefordshire based heating firm, as the expansion of its boiler installations business continues at pace.

It has purchased Hereford Heating, which has thousands of customers and commercial contracts in Herefordshire and Wales.

Hereford Heating was founded in 2006 by managing director Rob Nash. It employs 30 people, and last year installed around 400 boilers for its 6,500 customers.

Hereford Heating, set to retain its name and continue to operate as normal, adds to the three firms who joined HomeServe UK during the last financial year, taking its ownership to five companies in total.

Richard Shepherd, pictured, HomeServe’s managing director of installations, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to welcome Hereford Heating to the growing HomeServe family. As a company, they boast an outstanding local reputation for excellent customer service alongside strong profitability. We are committed to continuing to identify solid, profitable heating services firms to expand our portfolio even further.

“As with all our acquisitions, we will let them carry on doing what they do best. I speak for everyone at HomeServe when I say Hereford Heating will be a great addition to our company and we wish them ongoing success with us by their side.”
