Edwin James Group bolsters growth plans with new corporate development head

Christopher Kehoe and Daniel Longden

Engineering services provider Edwin James Group has appointed Daniel Longden as its first head of corporate development.

A qualified chartered accountant, Mr Longden brings a wealth of experience from his previous roles at K3 Capital Group Plc and JLA Group. His appointment is part of the Edwin James’ growth plans. 

Following the successful purchase of specialist control systems integration services provider ACS in January, the group is actively seeking additional opportunities that will strengthen an already broad proposition.

In 2023, Edwin James Group secured secondary investment from funds under management by Aliter Capital, providing a robust platform for its buy-and-build strategy. This capital has paved the way for the next phase of growth.

Christopher Kehoe, CEO of Edwin James Group, said: “Our recent successes, including a 22% increase in turnover last fiscal year and substantial additions to our forward order book, have positioned us well for accelerated growth.

“Daniel’s expertise in acquisitions will be instrumental in executing our buy-and-build strategy.”

Mr Longden added: “It’s great to be joining Edwin James Group at such a pivotal time.

“The market landscape is notably fragmented, and our vision of creating a cohesive service offering for customers is gaining traction.

“With the Group’s impressive history of organic growth, I am confident that strategic M&A initiatives will propel our expansion and generate substantial value for our stakeholders.”
