BIRMINGHAM-based data network, cabling and communications supplier CDI Group has expanded its security division with a new acquisition.

The group has taken over city rival Discovery Cabling Solutions in an undisclosed deal.

The CDI Group has offices in Birmingham, London and Newcastle. It supplies cabling, hardware telephony systems, CCTV and electrical systems to sectors including banking & finance, legal, healthcare, education, retail and manufacturing. It also has contracts with the aerospace industry and the Ministry of Defence.

The group has a turnover of more than £8m and customers include: HP, the Ministry of Justice, BAA, Saint Gobain, Jewson and RBS.

The Discovery deal has seen CDI Security Services gain accreditation from the independent regulatory body, NACOSS (National Approval Council for Security Systems), which gives accreditation to companies complying with its policies and procedures and which meet British and European standards.

Glyn Rogers, director of the Security Division at CDI Group, said: “I’m extremely happy to announce this new acquisition which continues the on-going success of the security division.

“The company is going from strength to strength and we’re now looking forward to taking our portfolio to another level.”

CDI Security Services will incorporate the team from Discovery Cabling Solutions, which has been trading for 15 years.

Carl Purvin, managing director at Discovery Cabling Solutions, said: “It’s fantastic to be part of CDI Group. The company has a strong track record in working in the security industry and I’m looking forward to being an integral part of its continued development and success.”
