The buyout was led by CEO David Lowe and the senior management team, which has been instrumental in driving growth over the last few years, both organically and through acquisition.

David comments: “There is an incredible opportunity to transform the experience and value customers of engineering surveys receive. Through investment in new technology combined with a customer centric focus we aim to revolutionise our industry and become the most trusted engineering survey and monitoring provider in the UK.

“Our new value creation plans are now a possibility, thanks to the support of WestBridge. These plans will benefit our clients, making it easier for them to access a wider range of surveys and monitoring solutions quickly and efficiently, confident in the engineering expertise they will receive.”
