The CDS team has been gripped by Euro 2020 fever. Not only are many of its colleagues glued to their TV screens (when not at work of course), they have also created their own version of the tournament wallchart – and have already conquered all three home nations.

Since the first kick off on June 11, the team has carried out projects in England, Scotland and Wales, demonstrating CDS’ truly national coverage as the company expands to offer its services to every corner of mainland Britain.

The Welsh projects follow both the recent acquisition of Monmouthshire-based Tann Synchronome and the opening earlier this year of an office in Manchester.

The appointments of CDS northern regional director Derek Stacey and sales manager Steve Hughes have also enabled CDS to extend its reach into North Wales and Scotland. The company has undertaken new projects for local authorities, universities and student accommodation providers in Edinburgh and across the county of Gwynedd.

And the appointment of regional sales manager Ross O’Connell to cover the South West and Wales has led to CDS significantly raising its profile in the region and increasing its ability to support the M & E sector in South Wales.

CDS has been well-known and respected for its operations in England for more than 30 years, and its new ‘buy and build’ strategy, introduced following its acquisition last year by MD Simon Abley and chairman Simon Cashmore,has been behind its successes in the other two home nations. The policy aims to see CDS expand geographically as well as adding new services to its offering.

Simon Abley said: “We thought it would be fun to have a focus on carrying out projects in all three home nations during the Euros.

“As you can see, we’ve been pretty successful. And we have other new projects which should be in the bag – or maybe the back of the net – before the final on July 11.”
