“We are excited to have McIntosh Industries join the SES family and welcome Peter and Pete to the leadership team,” says Sterrett Lloyd, Chief Executive Officer of SES. “As an integral part of our Technical and Field Services business pillar, the addition of McIntosh Industries underscores our commitment to continued growth, diversification and serving the growing technical and specialized needs of the elevator and escalator industry under one roof.”

This transaction could have derailed at various junctions of the process, but Maven Group’s thoughtful interventions kept us all on track. We really couldn’t have closed this deal without them, so the entire McIntosh family and I simply want to say: Thank You!”
