DESA Australia joins the ENGIE Group

DESA Australia is excited to announce Global energy and services company ENGIE has formally assumed 100 per cent ownership of the shares of the company through its subsidiary: ENGIE Energie Services S.A.
ENGIE operates energy services in Australia, focused on developing and implementing smart energy and environmental efficiency services in the industrial, public and commercial building sectors.

The DESA acquisition is in line with ENGIE’s strategy to help customers achieve their energy efficiency, environment, operations and maintenance objectives by offering customers a “one-stop shop” for multi-technical services, asset-based energy performance and environmental solutions.

“DESA is a top tier provider in the country and counts among its customers some of Australia’s biggest companies. With the ability to draw on ENGIE’s extensive expertSigningPhotoForPressReleaseise and our other businesses in power generation and retail, we have the opportunity to grow the business even further,” says Jérôme Tolot, Executive Vice President in charge of the Energy Services Business line.

DESA Chairman and founder Dennis Middleton said that the move into the ENGIE group created exciting opportunities for DESA’s employees in terms of the diversity of services the business will now be able to offer its customers. “It’s a great step forward for DESA and puts the business in a unique position in our industry. It will also generate exciting development opportunities for staff” Dennis said.

Managing Director of DESA, Gerard Whitely, paid tribute to the role Dennis and his co–founders Stephen Scott and David Dewar had played in building DESA into what it is today. “Dennis, David and Stephen have built a fantastic business as evidenced by ENGIE’s interest in it. They will always be recognised as the founders of the business and I know they look forward to seeing what the business can achieve under ENGIE ownership in the future and supporting it in any way they can” said Gerard.
