Our History

So much of our resource and time is now spent deciding on our strategy for the future, that we increasingly overlook the importance of knowing about our past. Indeed, a clear understanding of how we got to where we are today can help us decide where we want to be tomorrow and how we are going to get there.

We have grown through a series of acquisitions over the last 30 years, and will continue to grow in that way. Each of the businesses that has joined us has its own history and experiences, both in the UK and the US, and we think it is important to capture and preserve those, both for our benefit now and for the benefit of future generations.
