Headquartered in Paignton in Devon, Amberon is one of the UK’s leading providers of traffic management services, with a fleet of more than 400 vehicles. The business employs over 550 people, offering a wide range of safety solutions to support planned and emergency repairs, from traffic lights, signage and convoy working to variable message signs and CCTV.
Amberon secured a £25million funding package from LDC and HSBC in June 2017 to support its growth strategy.
In December 2018 LDC reached an agreement to sell its stake in Amberon. The sale follows a successful 18-month partnership where LDC supported the business and the management team grow the Group’s turnover by 23% to £37.5million, open six new depots, add 50 new vehicles to its fleet, create over 50 new jobs and complete a bolt-on acquisition of a business providing installation and repair services to barriers on the UK highways.
H2 Equity Partners has acquired Amberon for an undisclosed sum as the business moves to the next stage of its growth strategy.
