British Engineering Services was founded as a result of the carve-out of the Engineering Inspection & Consultancy division of RSA Plc, a division which can trace its roots back to 1859. Its predecessors were the companies who developed the original engineering inspection services, National Vulcan and British Engine. Today the company has over 450 highly trained Engineer Surveyors and Consultant Engineers, strong customer support systems and a wealth of technical expertise.
The Inflexion difference
With their understanding of the fragmented testing, inspection and consultancy services market, Inflexion is supporting British Engineering Services accelerate growth through consolidation opportunities. The initial five years of partnership with Inflexion transformed BES into a unique asset of scale in its market. Inflexion supported significant investment into various areas of the business including building a fully integrated back office, strengthening the team, and technological development. Management worked with Inflexion’s digital team to create a best-in-class tech-enabled service, while a number of acquisitions expanded BES’s offering, with two undertaken in the last three months of 2020. Inflexion will continue to support this highly successful strategy through the next period of partnership.
Our partnership with Inflexion has really delivered. The British Engineering Services Group offers industry leading services to its customers and benefits from a well invested infrastructure and technology base. Our market offers significant scope for continued growth, including through further consolidation, and Inflexion’s continued expertise, combined with our fantastic team, mean we are well prepared to continue to act on this.
