The Team
LDC Team

SGI Compliance is a market leader in environmental compliance and specialises in health and safety services in relation to legionella, water safety, asbestos and other hazardous materials.

The business records revenues of approximately £50m annually and employs more than 600 people across six countries, including the UK, the Netherlands, Belgium, Norway, France and Spain.

Going for growth

In May 2019 LDC invested £20m to back the carve out of SGI from global testing, inspection and certification group Kiwa.

SGI Compliance is now investing in its current portfolio of services to accelerate organic growth and also looking to add complementary service lines through a targeted buy and build strategy in its chosen international markets.

In 2021, LDC supported SGI to acquire Albany Oak Limited, an established water and effluent treatment specialist based in Wales. The transaction expands SGI’s services into industrial water treatment.
