No value was put on the deal, which was revealed by Proserv on Tuesday.

A spokesperson for Proserv said the deal value remains confidential.

The spokesperson added that all of Dron & Dickson's Middle East operational team has moved over to Proserv. As part of the deal, two of Dron & Dickon's senior regional managers will support the transition of the business into Proserv.

The deal will expand Proserv’s presence in the Middle East and North Africa region, where it currently has multiple sites, including in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Dammam and Doha.

DDEC provides a range of electrical engineering services and equipment suitable for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.

Proserv said the entire DDEC business and inventory will be absorbed into its Middle East business and based in its new Abu Dhabi facility, which opened last year.
