Based in Alberta, Canada, Advanced Electrical Services (AES) is a NETA accredited company that has two locations in Calgary and Edmonton from which it has been providing electrical testing services since 2008 throughout Western Canada. AES specializes in providing medium and high-voltage services and products into the renewable energy, mining, commercial, utility, and oil & gas market segments in Western Canada. RESA Power was acquired by Investcorp, a leading global alternative investment firm, in December 2021 and this marks the first add-on acquisition under their ownership.
Mark Angus, Chief Growth Officer at RESA Power, commented on the acquisition, “RESA Power has worked closely with the team at AES for several years and successfully collaborated on many projects, both in the USA and Canada. This long history of teamwork has deepened the relationship between RESA and AES to the point where this was the next logical step for both companies. Kevin Noonan, Zak Houk, Mark MacHattie, and the rest of the AES team have built a high-quality business that has earned the trust and respect of many customers who operate in the Western Canada marketplace. We view this alliance as providing a robust platform, along with our existing RESA business in Vancouver, to broaden our reach into the Canadian marketplace as well as adding an impressive roster of 30+ highly skilled technicians to the 200+ field technicians already in the RESA Power family”.
Kevin Noonan, President, and co-owner of Advanced Electrical Services, added, “We are delighted to formally partner with RESA Power, and feel that our combined expertise and resources will enable us to provide our existing customers not only an enhanced portfolio of products and services, but also broaden our geographic reach, enabling us to meet our customers’ requests to service more of their locations from a local base of operations. Additionally, we look forward to partnering with RESA Power on larger projects in both Canada and the USA”.
