London, 26 February 2024 – Learnd, a leading provider of energy management solutions for non-residential buildings, has recently announced its acquisition of Ashdown Controls Limited, a prominent BMS and energy solutions provider based in Ireland.

With headquarters in Dublin and Antrim, Ashdown Controls has established itself as a trusted provider of BMS and energy management solutions throughout the island of Ireland. Their services have helped numerous customers reduce their energy costs and carbon emissions, making them a valuable addition to Learnd’s mission of decarbonising the built environment.

“We are thrilled to join forces with Learnd in our efforts to combat carbon emissions and work towards Europe’s net-zero goal,” said Seamus McGlade, Owner of Ashdown Controls. “For over 35 years, Ashdown Controls has been at the forefront of providing innovative solutions to our customers, and now, with the support of Learnd’s resources and technology, we are confident that we can achieve even greater success. Together, we can harness the Power of Many to drive positive change in the built environment across Europe.”

John Clifford, co-founder and CEO of Learnd, also expressed excitement about the acquisition, stating, “Ashdown Controls brings a wealth of industry experience and expertise to the Learnd group, aligning perfectly with our mission to unite the Power of Many. This acquisition also marks our first step into the European Union, demonstrating our commitment to becoming the leading energy management provider in Europe.”

Simon Wood, co-founder and COO of Learnd, added, “The entire team at Learnd has been impressed with Ashdown Control’s exceptional work and are delighted to welcome them to our company. We are confident that together, we can make significant strides towards achieving net-zero.”

Learnd, which offers energy management solutions to reduce energy costs and carbon emissions in non-residential buildings, went public on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange following a business combination in January 2023. This acquisition is a strategic move for Learnd as it aims to expand its presence in the European market and consolidate the building management systems industry.
