Support Services Private Equity

Backing Britain’s business helpers

Colin McCarthy, Executive Director
Panther Logistics

LDC has backed the management teams of more than 100 support services firms with over £1.1bn of capital, making more than 12 investments in the last three years alone.

From procurement and HR services to logistics and distribution, these B2B companies make British business work. Often underestimated, but not by us, this sector makes up the lion’s share of UK GDP.

Some of our recent successes in this sector includes our four-year partnership with Panther Logistics where revenue doubled and profit tripled, the growth of technology-led logistics company ByBox which doubled in value during our partnership and the expansion across the UK for HR services firm Ellis Whittam and Keoghs, the leading provider of claims-related services.

Our current support services portfolio reflects the breadth of the sector and includes businesses like corporate fleet management provider Global Autocare, traffic equipment provider SRL Traffic Systems and B2B energy price comparison service Love Energy Savings.

We take the time to understand the value companies in this sector bring to their clients.
