Established in 1989, the CET Group provides specialist infrastructure and property assurance services from its headquarters in Castle Donington and its numerous regional facilities.
CET’s infrastructure division operates from a nationwide network of regional offices and UKAS accredited testing laboratories, providing a comprehensive range of materials testing and inspection services. The property assurance arm of the business provides specialist claim response, property risk investigation and issue mitigation services for the UK insurance claims sector.
Our team has advised CET on the acquisitions of four complementary businesses in recent years. In 2016 we acted on the acquisitions of The Testing Group Limited and Omega Calibration Laboratories Limited and in 2018 (during the wider sale process), we acted on the acquisitions of triAqua Limited and the insurance claims management and related building maintenance response businesses of Mitie Property Services (UK) Limited.
In November 2018 our team acted for Equity Harvest Fund, along with all individual sellers, on the sale of CET Group Holdings Limited to Project C Bidco Limited, a company formed by management for the purpose. The acquisition was supported by funding from Beechbrook Capital LLP and Clydesdale Bank Plc, along with investment from Palatine Private Equity.
