Southern Maintenance Solutions moves to new, larger premises

Southern Maintenance Solutions (SMS) moves to new, larger premises & extends capabilities with acquisition of new business.

Southern Maintenance Solutions UK Ltd (SMS), a well-established & successful provider of comprehensive commercial heating and cooling services, has relocated its business to new, larger premises on the Youngs Industrial Estate, Aldermaston, Berkshire. The company, which employs 17 engineers & a team of five support staff, has grown significantly in the last decade and recorded a £2.2million turnover last year.

Kevin Tarbox, managing director, said; “This is an exciting time for SMS. Facilities managers need to balance a comfortable working environment, with the ever- increasing need reduce energy consumption & costs. By investing in our support & maintenance programmes, they can be confident that their equipment & plant is functioning in both a safe & efficient way.”

With legislation on the horizon affecting both carbon reduction & the abolition of some refrigeration gases, & the push towards air & ground source heating as an alternative to more traditional oil & gas fired solutions, the entire building & facilities management market is undergoing a transformation. Recognising the opportunities presented by these changes, SMS has recently acquired the business interests of Flare Services Ltd, a supplier, installer & maintainer of all types of commercial & industrial boilers, & a specialist in large scale burner work.

“This latest acquisition means we are able to extend our offering & it opens up opportunities for us in new markets;” said Kevin Tarbox.



Southern Maintenance Solutions UK Ltd was founded 30 years ago & since then has established itself as one of the leading providers of commercial heating, cooling & air handling installation & maintenance services in South East England. It has had particular success in the private education sector but also has long standing maintenance agreements with a range of commercial property managers for premises including various places of worship, modern gym facilities & office/manufacturing buildings.

In addition to its core activities, engineers at the company are also qualified to handle the installation & maintenance of a range of complimentary systems including electrical systems, water treatment, commercial kitchens & commercial pipework installation. The company recognises the need to invest in its staff & currently has four apprentices working towards industry recognised qualifications.
