  • The Gas Tag Group acquires leading gas safety management consultants 
in multi-million pound deal

    Leading RegTech company Gas Tag has acquired independent gas compliance consultants Morgan Lambert.

    The strategic deal is set to create the sector’s leading multi-disciplinary compliance consultancy to the UK social housing sector.

    The acquisition is for the Millington Lord Group, which includes Morgan Lambert, who work with social landlords to provide gas and electrical auditing and safety management consultancy, as well as Qualitas Compliance, which provides similar services to the private sector.

    Gas Tag is a leading Regulatory Technology company and its innovative technology has been developed to enable housing associations to meet their gas safety and associated regulatory requirements.

    New research by the Gas Safe Register reveals that 66% of homes in the UK have defective gas appliances. More than 1.1 million illegal gas installations are carried out each year, putting the lives of millions of Britons at risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, gas leaks, fires, and explosions.

    Both Morgan Lambert and Qualitas Compliance offer additional complementary auditing capabilities to enrich Gas Tag’s services, allowing them to expand and reinforce their continued commitment to gas safety across the UK.

    Simon Millington and Mick Lord will continue to work within the business, while Lee Bradshaw, who’s worked in the company for nine years, has taken over as Managing Director for Morgan Lambert.

    George Dutton, CFO of Gas Tag said: “We are extremely excited about this strategic acquisition. It’s a fantastic opportunity which will help us to achieve our vision of making the UK the safest country in the world.

    “Morgan Lambert and Qualitas Compliance have a significant amount of knowledge and experience as well as an impressive list of clients who put gas safety at the heart of everything they do.

    “The complementary nature of our businesses will allow for a seamless integration; creating a significant and unique offering to our key customers.”

    Lee Bradshaw, Managing Director of Morgan Lambert said: “This is an exciting time for us. Both Morgan Lambert and Gas Tag have a passionate desire to improve Gas Safety within the UK and these aligned interests will allow both businesses to focus on this vision, share innovation ideas and improve the sector.” 

    Simon Millington said: “We have worked tirelessly to build a business based on professionalism, attention to detail and innovation.  The acquisition by Gas Tag will enable further expansion of the business, taking it to a whole new level and I couldn’t be more pleased”

    The positive impact of Gas Tag’s technology is having on the gas industry has been recognised in a series of prestigious industry awards.

    Earlier this year private equity house Waterland invested in Gas Tag valuing it at well over £20 million.

    About Gas Tag

    Gas Tag was founded by Liverpool entrepreneurs Paul Durose and Stephen Ullathorne.

    Paul previously ran a construction company with a heating division and noticed that the quality of engineers’ work drastically improved when he sent out auditors to check the work after every job.

    Stephen is a former senior business analyst for Barclays and previously ran his own business consultancy.

    Gas Tag has been developed to ensure that the correct work is carried out on gas appliances at the appropriate time, by the right engineers. As soon as a physical Gas Tag is installed on the gas inlet in a property it tracks all the property’s gas appliances, services and installations – and can only be used by a qualified Gas Safe Registered engineer.

    Some of Britain’s biggest housing associations and local authorities have already snapped up the Gas Tag technology, helping to improve the safety of millions of tenants in their properties.

  • Procurement For All

    We are proud to announce that we have been accepted onto the Procurement For All Framework!

    What is a Framework ?

    A framework agreement is an understanding between service providers that sets out the terms under which specific purchases (call-offs) can be made throughout the term of the agreement. The maximum term of a framework is four years. The most common call-off will be via a mini–competition tender exercise. A framework agreement is subject to the EU procurement rules.

    Procurement For All say

    All of our frameworks are national, and OJEU compliant. They provide substantial financial benefits to our members, including access to the collective purchasing power of organisations managing more than 300,000 properties.

    Through our framework agreements we provide a free-to-use mini competition service, saving a considerable amount of time and cost for our members.

    By using our services we can save organisations an average of £6,000 per annum on direct procurement costs for each contract they use through Procurement For All.
