It has particular strengths in the energy sector, the private sector waste management industry, and the planning and development sector, working for many of the major commercial developers.
The right environment for rapid growth
- Our investment provided capital and support to evaluate, assess and deliver a programme of UK and international acquisitions, namely Insite Environments and Seacor Environmental
- Capital from Livingbridge enabled the management team to invest in financial systems and HR to support growth, with a significant recruitment push. We supported the recruitment of a non-executive chairman who joined at completion.
- New offices opened in the UK and US in 2006, with over a third of SLR’s revenues generated outside of the UK at point of exit
- Staff levels grew from 168 in 2003 to 600+ in 2008
“We have supported SLR through an impressive period of growth, where its geographic footprint, range of services and reputation have all developed strongly. This success has been underpinned by the exceptional culture within SLR, which today has over 220 employee shareholders.”
