Harper Macleod LLP advises CSS on its acquisition of Graham Robertson Electrical and Security Limited

Harper Macleod is delighted to announce that we advised security solutions consolidator, Connelly Security Systems Limited (CSS) on its acquisition of Stirlingbased Graham Robertson Electrical and Security Limited.

Paul Macdonald, Senior Associate, Harper Macleod LLP, who has now advised CSS on six acquisitions, said: "It was great to work with CSS again and I hope this deal proves to be as successful as other recent transactions, such as the acquisition of AFA Fire and Security Limited and T&D Security Systems Limited".

The deal allows CSS, which is largely based across Ayrshire, the Central Belt and the Lothians - where it provides alarms, CCTV, retail product tagging, access control and monitoring services to both the commercial and residential sectors - to acquire a family business which operates in similar marketplaces. The transaction extends CSS' reach further north in Scotland and adds additional strings to the CSS bow, with the acquired business having electrical and aerial service divisions. Graham Robertson, who has built the business of Graham Robertson Electrical and Security Ltd over the last 30 years, will remain with the company in a consultancy role.

"Paul Macdonald and the team at Harper Macleod worked tirelessly to get this deal done. As always, I was delighted with the service provided and will work with Paul and his colleagues again in the future."
