Asbestos and environmental consultancy business acquired

26 July 2016

Environmental and occupational safety group Lucion Services has announced the acquisition of Redhills asbestos and environmental consultancy for an undisclosed sum.

Lucion stated that this will increase its turnover to £25m, with a total workforce of nearly 400, effectively doubling the size of its existing business.

Headquartered in Gateshead, it also has offices in South London, Leicestershire, North Wales, Wolverhampton, Sheffield and Cambridgeshire, employing 180 people with a turnover of £12.2 million.

Managing director Dr Patrick Morton said: “There is tremendous goodwill associated with the Redhill’s brand and we are delighted to have completed this purchase.

"The acquisition totally complements our existing business offering, making it an ideal fit for us and a game-changer for our industry."

He further stated that the asbestos management market has seen rapid growth, which has brought "many changes".

"I’m proud to say that as a business we’ve always adapted quickly and been creative in our approach to supporting clients."

The Redhills name will continue within Lucion Environmental and its network of eight regional offices will share back office systems and processes in addition to collaborating on new ideas for service provision.
