The Unique Group Acquires Long-Established Electrical Contracting Firm Drewlec

The Unique Group, a trusted provider of fire safety, security, electrical, renewable energy, audio-visual, and total property solutions, proudly announces its acquisition of Drewlec, a long-standing electrical, fire and security contracting company with a proud history dating back to 1964.


6 Decades of Excellence

Established in central Southern England, Drewlec has been a huge name in the electrical, fire and security contracting industry for over six decades. Specialising in delivering electrical solutions to a diverse clientele, Drewlec has gained a reputation for excellence and reliability. Their team of highly skilled electrical engineers ensures that every project is carried out with precision and adherence to industry guidelines.

Offering a Broader Range of Services

Under the leadership of Nick Hand, who completed a management buyout in 2020, Drewlec has thrived as an independent entity. However, recognising the similarities between the Unique Group’s extensive experience in fire alarm systems and Drewlec’s reputation, Nick made the decision to hand over the reins. This strategic alignment allows Drewlec to offer a broader range of services to its customers while maintaining the same commitment to quality and excellence.

Shared Values and Growth Prospects

The decision to acquire Drewlec was driven by the Unique Group’s dedication to supporting continued growth in the industry. Impressed by Drewlec’s strong engineering team and shared values, the Unique Group saw an opportunity to bolster its offerings while maintaining the high standards both companies are known for. Drewlec’s existing client base can expect an enhanced level of service, with access to a broader range of solutions and expertise.

A Word from Bradley Williams, Managing Director of the Unique Group

“We are delighted to welcome Drewlec to the Unique Group family, which marks the start of an exciting journey together. With Drewlec’s expertise and our shared commitment to excellence, we’re not just expanding our services, but we’re building a stronger community of electrical solutions. I’m excited about the opportunities ahead and the chance to work closely with the talented team at Drewlec to continue serving the South West.”

A Word from Nick Hand, Managing Director of Drewlec

“We are pleased to have the opportunity to become part of the Unique Group. This move will allow us to continue the high level of service we offer to our valued clients, while also growing the services we can offer. With similar core values, the two companies complement each other well and will benefit from each other’s experience. The Drewlec team are looking forward to working with the team at Unique and our continued growth.”

A Seamless Transition for Clients

As part of the acquisition, all Drewlec staff will remain on board, ensuring continuity and a seamless transition for clients. The Unique Group’s plans for the company involve not only maintaining but enhancing Drewlec’s service offerings, expanding its services, and integrating with the Unique Group to strengthen its market presence. 

The Unique Group is excited to have Nick join their senior management team. Given his previous role as Managing Director of Drewlec, Nick’s expertise and familiarity with the company will be invaluable in preserving and furthering their relationships with Drewlec clients, guaranteeing continued exceptional service.
