BGF provided £10 million in funding to RSK Group plc, a global environmental, health, safety and engineering services company headquartered in Cheshire, UK. The funding is supporting the group’s acquisition of agricultural and environmental consultancy ADAS and its longer-term growth plans.
Working with clients such as Shell, Taylor Wimpey, and HS2 Limited, RSK provides environmental impact assessments, clean-up operations and geotechnical analysis on major infrastructure projects in the UK and worldwide. For example, the company is currently working on the Mersey Gateway Project. Founded in 1989 by Chief Executive Officer Dr Alan Ryder, RSK is now the biggest private environmental consultancy in the UK. The business has a turnover of more than £100 million and employs more 1500 staff worldwide.
RSK’s acquisition of the business, operating assets and employees engaged in ADAS UK Ltd will add new services to its portfolio, including expertise in land management, crop and food production, specialist chemical risk assessment and town planning.
