Enhanced Control Systems Ltd (ECS) are pleased to announce that effective as of 2nd March 2021, we will be joining AVK-SEG UK Ltd. As part of a continuous growth and expansion plan AVK-SEG UK Ltd (AVK) have acquired the ECS business, presenting us with an incredible opportunity to create the scale we believe we need to respond to the growing requirements of our valued clients.

United by a common business culture and unrivalled commitments to customer service, this milestone acquisition for AVK will enable them to add ECS’s key technological capabilities, assets, and additional services to its already comprehensive service offering – further strengthening AVK’s position as the UK’s leading critical power solutions provider.

 “At ECS we’ve always believed in offering the very best engineered solutions for our customers. There’s a clear alignment between our two business operations and with plenty of complementary specialisms, the deal will create additional value through synergies in shared best practice and technologies. The combined strength of both AVK and ECS will have an enviable client list from day one, including many of the world’s leading financial institutions, utility suppliers, pharmaceutical giants and the largest hyperscale data centre providers. We look forward to offering the most comprehensive levels of service and control solutions to all of our clients – old and new.”Graham Port

“Both AVK and ECS are well established as industry-leading providers of critical power and control solutions for a wide range of clients across the UK and Ireland. By combining these already successful business operations we are creating an enviable new force in the market, with the scale, quality and breadth of competencies needed to meet our clients’ increasingly complex control and critical power protection requirements. Responding to the increasingly international outlook of our clients, we are also building a platform from which we can grow into the most trusted power solution specialist across the EMEA region, with the capability to follow our customers globally. This is a truly exciting opportunity for everyone involved, and on behalf of everyone here at AVK we’d like to welcome the ECS team, and we look forward to working together as ‘The Power People’” Chris Pritchard, Managing Director, AVK-SEG


AVK are the UK’s leading provider of critical power systems and maintenance, specialising in all aspects of the design, planning, implementation and on-going maintenance of critical power systems for over 30 years. Since founding in 1989, AVK have enjoyed steady and consistent growth, not only in size, but also in reputation and service offering. The business is trusted by many of the UK’s largest Data Centre Blue-Chip companies to design, install and maintain 100% power integrity to guarantee their operations when mains power fails.

As we have worked together on a number of projects in the past, some of you may already be familiar with the AVK team. Further introductions will be made in due course however, in the meantime, you can get a feel for the business by visiting their website www.avk-seg.co.uk.

To continue to provide a seamless service to our existing client base, ECS will continue to operate under their separate brand identity for the immediate future. Any clients who may be immediately affected by the acquisition will be contacted in the first instance, however neither business anticipates any disruption to current service levels. We will be publishing details of the announcement to the press and social media shortly, and as always, we’d appreciate your continued efforts to spread the word of this exciting development to your industry contacts and networks.

ECS and AVK look forward to a powerful future working together and we thank the teams and clients of both businesses for their continued support.
