CSL was founded in 1999, as an alarm signalling company, but over the past 25 years, they have transitioned to become a European focussed, critical Internet of Things connectivity company.

To discuss their journey we chatted to CEO, Ed Heale, about why our in-depth knowledge and expertise in the sector, our understanding of their business, and the early engagement of the whole team were big factors in their decision to choose ECI as their private equity partner.

Ed also describes how, post investment, we demonstrated our reputation for being supportive and letting management get on with running the business, but also how our Commercial Team bring their considerable resources to drive growth and work closely to achieve the same goals.

CSL’s Chief Executive, Ed Heale: Why we chose to partner with ECI

ECI have been how I hoped they were going to be. They’ve been supportive, and challenging, at the right times, but they’ve bought into where we’re trying to get to, they’ve bought into the plan, they’re helping us with M&A, and that bodes well for the future”.
