About the entity

Edwin James Group
The Edwin James Group has brought together a number of businesses that now operate under three brands, EJ Parker Technical Services, EJ Musk Process Services and EJ Peak Technology Solutions.

United Utilities has appointed EJ Peak Technology Solutions to its Digital Services – Monitoring & Control, Design & Build framework following a competitive tender. Part of the Edwin James Group, EJ Peak is a digitalisation and industrial technologies specialist that helps clients modernise and achieve their digital transformation goals.

The framework runs for an initial three-year period with the option to extend up to five years. The framework aims to enhance Digital Services Monitoring and Control (DS M&C) capability to ensure United Utilities can produce year-on-year improvements through innovation and business improvement.

Framework Scope

The scope and scale of the works will vary from simple ICA (Instrumentation, Control and Automation) installations to large complex design and build projects. The DS M&C scope of delivery will range from first-time install to upgrade, development, integration and optimisation of existing monitoring and control infrastructure.

“Looking forward to working collaboratively”

Commenting on the appointment, Michael Thomas, executive director, EJ Peak Technology Solutions said: “We’re very pleased to secure our place on this framework and are looking forward to working collaboratively with United Utilities and their partners to deliver improvements. We work with several utilities firms and understand the broad scope of work that is required and the complex environments that they operate in.

“To support the sector, Edwin James Group recently launched our Digital Academy, which aims to plug the skills gap by building capacity.  It supports our commitment to apprentices and training existing staff in modern industrial technologies.”

“Clear Understanding of our Business Challenges”

United Utilities is responsible for water and wastewater services in the North West of England. It delivers 1.8 billion litres of water daily to more than 3 million homes and businesses in the region.

Commenting on the appointment, Matthew Fildes, Commercial Business Manager at United Utilities said: “We’re pleased to welcome EJ Peak Technology Solutions onto this digital services framework. The team demonstrated a clear understanding of our business challenges in their bid, and their commitment to supporting apprentices aligns with our drive to boost skills and support growth in our region. We are looking forward to working together over the coming years.”
