Successful Completion of Management Buyout

Celebration of buyout

AES Sustainability Consultants and Domestic Air Leakage Testing Energy Consultants (DALTEC) announce successful completion of management buyout


The founder of both companies, Jon Bodington, was keen to protect the businesses and its staff by giving the management team the opportunity to purchase the businesses so he could take a step back to pursue other interests.  The buyout has transferred ownership of both companies to AES Sustainability Limited whose new shareholders include Jon and Sue Bodington along with members of the senior management team: Fraser Hall, Anna Farmer, Alex Brooks, Silvio Junges, Greg Lock, Andrew McManus and Stewart Boyce.

Day to day management control of the companies is retained by the existing Directors; Fraser Hall, Anna Farmer and Alex Brooks.

AES Sustainability Consultants and DALTEC provide high quality advice and technical support throughout the lifecycle of a development, from land buying and planning stages right through to post-construction testing and certification. The two companies employ over 40 staff and service clients across the UK, including many of the top national housebuilders, developers and contractors.

“I have worked with Jon since 2005 and found him to be an inspirational, driven and focused leader.  After 14 years of building AES Sustainability Consultants and DALTEC I understand his desire to take a step back from the businesses and am happy to take up the reigns and continue to deliver his vision.Fraser Hall

Founding AES Sustainability Consultants in 2005, Jon Bodington soon became the Managing Director of a growing team and whilst he won’t be in the office day-to-day, he will still have an impact on the future of AES and DALTEC through his role of Chairman.

“I have worked in AES for over eight years now and am extremely proud of the expertise and dedication of the team.  We are very grateful for the passion that Jon has instilled in us all and the high standards he has set. 

Jon has always been the driving force behind the business but as we have grown the senior managers have taken on increasing responsibility for the day to day running of the company and shaping our future direction. 

Jon’s decision to take a step back will not impact on our future growth as we have strong relationships with our client base and a passionate team dedicated to delivering the highest standards of service. Jon set up the company to deliver honest, impartial advice to the construction industry and we will continue to do this for our clients across the UK, large and small.”  Anna Farmer
