Forrest is a leading construction services provider.

The business operates primarily in the North West, Yorkshire, North East, Midlands and North Wales.

LDC invested in Forrest in 2007 to support the company’s future growth plans.

Since the original transaction, significant investment was placed into the new environmental services division, new IT infrastructure to improve service delivery was implemented and a new regional service centre in Bolton opened.

In 2013 LDC partially exited Forrest following a secondary buyout by Palatine Private Equity. LDC retains a minority shareholding behind the lead investor.
