Dec 22, 2015

22/12/2015 · United Kingdom · General Industrials · Business Growth Fund Environmental Essentials is one of the UK’s leading asbestos service providers. In December 2015, BGF invested £3.2m in the company to support continued organic and acquisitive growth. Based in Stoke-on-Trent and operating from six offices throughout the UK, the business provides asbestos management, training and surveying services to corporates, local authorities and public sector institutions. Richard Powner and James Riley co-founded the business in 2004. Environmental Essential’s management team is using the funding to open a national asbestos training centre in Stoke-on-Trent and a new office in Aberdeen focused on the oil and gas sector. The funding will also support selected acquisitions of businesses in asbestos and complementary health and safety and compliance services in strategically-relevant regions of the UK. Simon Cashmore, CEO of BGF-backed TCL Group , has joined Environmental Essentials’ board as non-executive chairman. Richard Powner, co-founder and Director at Environmental Essentials: “There is a sizable market opportunity for us to go after in the UK.
