“The company’s controls and asset management capability will enhance Clough’s operations and maintenance services, while their specialisation in control system design will assist the CloughCoens commissioning business in Korea with design, delivery and commissioning activities.”

Gallagher added that the circa nine million pounds acquisition brings complementary skills and significantly strengthens its service offering to clients.
