Home emergency repair fulfillment services provider UK Assistance247 Ltd (UKA247) has been snapped up by global group Sedgwick for an undisclosed sum.
“We have had the pleasure of working with UKA247 on thousands of property claims and look forward to further growing our operations together with their talented colleagues and network of over 3,000 contractors,” said Sedgwick UK chief executive Paul White.
“This partnership will expand our home emergency support offerings and improve the customer experience for traditional property claims. Our streamlined process will ensure that customers receive rapid expert care during stressful and urgent claim events.”
UKA247 – whose round-the-clock repairs span plumbing, electrical, drainage, and boilers – will boost its new owner’s growing network of repair and property claim management solutions in the UK, while also advancing Sedgwick’s ability to provide a one-source proposition.
Commenting on the deal, UKA247 managing director Aaron Lyons stated: “Our aim is to provide every customer with a cost-effective and reliable repair service. We can now integrate our emergency repair operations with Sedgwick’s repair and restoration referral services, simplifying the process for all.
“By aligning with the support and depth of Sedgwick, I am confident that we will continue to offer the best emergency repair solutions for our customers.”
Based in Pontefract, UKA247 has been operating since 2005.
