The experience and technical expertise of EDSL and the bespoke solutions they offer will greatly enhance our Group Companies product offering and supply service to our UK and Overseas markets”.

The Electro Automation Group was originally founded in 1984 to provide high-quality Access Control, Gate Automation, Car Parking Control, and payment systems. Over the years the Groups product portfolio has considerably expanded and now includes, Highway Toll and Tagging Systems, Information Technology, Access Control, Security and Building Management systems, Reception Speed lanes, UK manufactured Automatic Revolving doors and entrance solutions.
The Groups HQ is based in Dublin Eire with sister Companies in Northern Ireland, United Kingdom, and Germany.

EDS Limited, has been established and trading for over 27 years and has been very much involved in the aforementioned product range but boast a more bespoke-in-house manufactured solution.
These primarily consist of Turnstiles for Sale or Hire, Traffic control systems, Rising bollards, complex bespoke Gate and Door Automation systems, which have been successfully installed in many prestigious UK and Overseas project locations.

The goal and objective of this acquisition are to bring a bespoke “turn-key” solution to a wider audience within a greater territory. The Group Companies also share a wealth of technical experience and knowledge which will enable the development of new product innovation in the future.

In the short-term, both businesses will operate much in the same way but there is huge excitement, optimism, and vision for development and expansion in the years to come.
