Edwin James Group is aligning its brands – Jex Process Services will become EJ Musk Process Services, and Korrie Technical Services will join forces with the EJ Parker Technical Services
The move comes as the Edwin James Group rolls-out its expansion plans with its biggest ever investment in training and technology across the UK.
Both businesses will continue to deliver engineering services with a more defined offer to the market. No job losses will occur as a result of the integration.
The operational teams and people remain unchanged, with a focus on providing a quality service to customers.
Both the Musk and Parker brands are highly respected, working with clients across the UK. Musk works in partnership with companies to improve their manufacturing capability and competitive advantage.
Parker offers clients a complete package of technical services for the built environment.
Bringing the companies together under two business units will enable better customer service through joint engineering and manufacturing expertise.
