North East based electrical services solutions provider, Quantum Controls, has acquired Scottish electrical contractor, Lothian and Borders Electrical, with support from Mincoffs Solicitors.

Q Electrical Industrial Services (the new trading entity) has brought together more than 60 years of combined knowledge and expertise between Quantum Controls and Lothian and Borders, enabling it to provide clients with a comprehensive service offering of “full turnkey electrical solutions”.
A team of specialist lawyers from Mincoffs Solicitors’ Corporate Team provided legal advice and support to Quantum Controls on the acquisition and associated arrangements.
Corporate Team Partner John Nicholson, who led on the transaction, commented: “We were pleased to support Quantum Controls on the acquisition of Lothian and Borders and the creation of Q Electrical Industrial Services. The deal has provided the team at Quantum with a great platform from which to expand their reach Scotland and we look forward to working closely with them in the future as they continue to expand and develop.”
Kevin Brown, Managing Director of Quantum Controls commented: “Continued growth in our business activities in Scotland has led to this exciting new investment in the Scottish economy. The Service Centre will create a local support which will allow us to offer more services for all customers based throughout Scotland. Establishing the new company with Robert and Lyall Colvin who have 40 years’ experience in delivering electrical contracting services is an exciting opportunity that allows us to invest in the Scottish Economy and creating a base in Scotland to best service all our clients at a local level.
“The acquisition posed legal difficulties in that both Scottish and English Laws applied to different aspects of deal. Mincoffs provided an excellent professional service throughout the process”
