At completion, NSS had £0.8m of free cash.

NSS, established in 1993, provides temporary lighting and site electrics principally to the petrochemical and industrial sectors from its Teesside base in Middlesbrough. NSS will be integrated with Hire Station’s market leading safety rental activity, ESS Safeforce. In the year to 31st March 2007, NSS generated revenues of £0.5m.
