Investment group ventures into infrastructure with acquisition
A London-based investment group has successfully completed its first acquisition in the infrastructure and engineering sector.
RD Capital Partners has acquired Killingley, a multi-functional civil engineering, commercial landscaping, and grounds maintenance firm based in Chesterfield. Established in 1972, it employs 120 staff members and has an annual turnover of £16m.
It works across a mix of local councils, public bodies, private enterprises, architects and some of the UK’s leading construction companies.
Established in 2015 by Sameer Rizvi and Iryna Dubylovska, RDCP controls £60m of investments and employs 400 full-time staff members, across its core sectors of healthcare, infrastructure and real estate.
All its healthcare investments are made via its subsidiary, RDCP Care, an elderly and specialist care operator which currently manages six nursing homes with numerous live projects in the pipeline.
Rizvi, CEO of RDCP, said: “We are pleased to have had the opportunity to acquire such an impressive business, led by a fantastic managing director, Gareth Dillon. Him and his team deliver market-leading work across all spectrums of their projects.”
“Our vision for 2020 is to build a presence in three key sectors: healthcare, infrastructure, and real estate. We now have the scale as well as the access to debt markets that will allow us to establish a meaningful presence in a number of sectors. In order to build a future-proof business, we need to be diversified across uncorrelated sectors.
“We were attracted to Killingley because of their excellent reputation and track record of success and are committed to working with Gareth and his team to deliver long-term growth strategies. The company boasts a strong background in infrastructure and engineering works and has an impressive portfolio of clients across the UK.”
Gareth Dillon, managing director of Killingley, said: “I am delighted to welcome Sameer and Iryna to the Killingley team and look forward to working with them to continue the successful refocusing of the business following our recent restructuring.”
