On the 19th October 2017, Gallagher agreed to acquire Overlec, an experienced provider of overhead line services throughout the UK’s electricity market.

The acquisition bolsters Gallagher’s position in power and leaves us well placed to achieve further growth with both our existing and our new clients.

Overlec places great emphasis on the importance of safety, innovation, and customer satisfaction. With a strong and experienced management team, the business brings two new clients to the Gallagher Group; Scottish Power (SPEN) and Scottish and Southern Electric (SSE).

The business provides overhead line construction and refurbishment in SPEN’s Mid-Wales region, around Newtown, and throughout SSE’s southern operations from Oxford to the south coast. In Overlec, we have found an organisation with a great fit in terms of culture, management style and approach.
