Acquisition creates drilling and sawing super-group.
Robore, the UK’s leading diamond drilling and sawing contractor, has completed the acquisition of Holemasters in a deal that will make Robore-Holemasters the largest diamond drilling and sawing contractor throughout Europe.
Robore is already recognised as the UK’s leading provider for diamond drilling and specialist cutting services, predominately within the South Eastern construction industry. The addition of Holemasters national coverage, technology and expertise will enable both companies to apply these specialist skills to an even larger variety of sectors, and with a combined workforce of over 200 employees puts us firmly on the map as the UK’s No 1.
Robore founded in 1986 has since grown from our London based head office, to become one of the largest diamond drilling and sawing and controlled robotic demolition companies throughout the UK with over 100 employees. Founded in 1996, Holemasters Ltd was formed out of Demtech Concrete Services Ltd, which started trading in 1991. It currently employs 25 staff, 90 operators from offices in Cumbria, Bolton, South Yorkshire, Redditch and Enfield, London.
Commenting on acquisition, David Rickus Managing Director of Robore and David Bailie Managing Director at Holemasters, said: “We are delighted to be joining forces to expand our respective business. With our shared belief in the professionalism of our staff and combined expertise and experience within the construction industry will prove beneficial to our ever increasing blue chip client base.
Both Robore and Holemasters will continue to trade under their existing names following the acquisition.
