UTILITA has added award-winning Assistive Technology provider Canary Care to its expanding and pioneering home-based technology services portfolio.

The deal provides the energy challenger brand – one of the largest suppliers in the UK – with a presence in Oxfordshire, where Canary Care is located, and strengthens its foothold in the home services market.

Founded in 2013, Canary Care has provided a state of the art wireless home monitoring service to hundreds of thousands of homes, being the go-to for more than 100 UK local authorities, NHS trusts, residential care and housing providers, and families across the UK.

George Walters, Chief Home Services Officer at Utilita, commented:

“We are delighted to have completed the acquisition of such a well-respected business in Canary Care.

“As well as significantly strengthening our foothold in the home services market as we look to grow and diversify, this purchase also allows us to expand Utilita’s geographical footprint into Oxfordshire.

“I would like to welcome Canary Care employees to Utilita and look forward to meeting and to working with them in the weeks and months to come.”

Canary Care will continue as a separate entity but will work closely with Utilita’s market-leading tech arm, Procode, to bring new products and services to market.

Stuart Butterfield, Co-Founder and Managing Director, at Canary Care, commented:

“Utilita is one of the most successful energy challenger brands in the UK and is well-known for being a tech innovator. This is great news for our customers, partners and staff and we are truly excited about what being part of the Utilita Group will enable us to achieve. Watch this space.”
