09 December 2016

The Founder and the Executive Management team at Assurity Consulting have taken the opportunity to secure a management buyout (MBO), strengthening further the company’s future as the UK’s leading independent health, safety and environmental consultancy.

Paul Foxcroft, Managing Director commented, “In our 30th year in business the Executive Management team is delighted to secure the future of our company.

"By remaining under private ownership, we can maintain our independence so our customers continue to receive unbiased, expert advice ensuring we remain their trusted partner for workplace compliance.

"We will continue to invest in our business, so we can create more jobs for our local community, deliver our services more efficiently and maintain our award winning customer service. In collaboration with our customers, we will continue to make sure our services provide the reassurance and protection they need.”

The Founder of the company, Rex Barnes will continue to be involved as Non-Executive Chairman, overseeing and advising the Board.
