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
Inflexion’s experience in carve-outs was invaluable in executing the deal. With their understanding of the fragmented testing, inspection and consultancy services market, Inflexion is supporting British Engineering Services accelerate growth through consolidation opportunities, with the first acquisition coming less than a year after the initial carve-out with the buyout of Nortest Limited.
Inflexion has proven to be a supportive investor, particularly in helping us strengthen our team with a number of valuable senior recruits. We are looking to build on our technical expertise, knowledge, resources and accreditations to create a business that will shape the future of our industry. With Inflexion’s backing we can deliver the very best customer service in the market.
