Gateshead environmental firm expands into radiation protection with acquisition
A Gateshead based environmental services company has acquired specialist consultancy Aberdeen Radiation Protection Services Ltd, in a strategic deal that strengthens its capabilities in the nuclear sector.
Founded in 2001, ARPS provides radiation protection services to a wide range of industrial and non-industrial companies operating globally. Lucion Group acquired the firm with the backing of mid-market private equity investor Palatine.
ARPS specialises in providing Radiation Protection advice, Radioactive Waste advice and Dangerous Goods Safety advice and training to customers.
While its core focus is the provision of radiation protection services to the Energy sector, it also serves the waste management industry including Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material (NORM) decontamination and final disposal sites, vets, teaching/research faculties, and local authorities.
Adam Mead, MD of Testing & Inspection at Lucion Group said: “The ARPS team has established an excellent reputation in the sector over the last two decades and their expertise, knowledge and contacts in the marketplace are welcome additions to the broad range of services we currently provide.
“Their capabilities complement the work we are already undertaking in the Nuclear sector and I am looking forward to working with the team as we continue to grow and provide a best-in-class range of environmental risk management services to our clients.”
Lucion Group operates nationwide with more than 500 employees working across over 20 industrial sectors and including Utilities, Real Estate, Nuclear, Technology, Marine and Development.
Lucion was supported on the acquisition by Addleshaw Goddard.
