World-class delivery capability

We’re delighted to announce that we have completed the acquisition of Comfort Controls Group. The acquisition underlines our dedication to deliver for our customers, through our unique Building Performance as a Service offering. With Comfort Controls’ outstanding engineering resources, we bolster the skills, experience and expertise available to our customers across the UK. 

The acquisition of Comfort Controls increases our engineering capability from circa 50 engineers to around 90 and augments our overall headcount to over 150 staff. Regionally, this means we will have greater coverage, gaining offices in the Midlands and North London to better serve our current and prospective customers. 

Day-to-day operations 

The acquisition won’t affect the day-today running of Comfort Controls. The business will continue to be run with the same focus on operational excellence as before, but with the advantages of learnd’s partnerships, financial tools, and skills. 

Following the acquisition, the business will retain both offices and all staff will retain their current roles. 

Comfort Controls have an outstanding reputation within the building controls industry, they’re hugely respected and have a H&S record that’s second to none. The acquisition complements the previous acquisition of Aimteq and WEMS, and shows our commitment to delivering on our promise of helping businesses align their buildings with the business goals and delivering guaranteed outcomes.

Simon Wood, Co-Founder & COO – learnd

There is fantastic alignment between Comfort and learnd. Their vision to deliver better buildings, and the financial tools they are using to guarantee those outcomes are truly innovative. But more than that, learnd’s drive for operational excellence and delivering for their customers matches ours perfectly.
