Shield International Group (SGI) is an international environmental testing, inspection and consultancy business.

SGI is a market leader in environmental compliance and specialises in health and safety services in relation to legionella, water safety, asbestos and other hazardous materials. The business records revenues of circa £50million annually and employs more than 600 people across six countries, including the UK, the Netherlands, Belgium, Norway, France and Spain.

In May 2019 LDC invested £20million to back the management buyout of SGI from global testing, inspection and certification group Kiwa.

SGI now plans to invest in its current portfolio of services to accelerate organic growth and also add complementary service lines through a targeted buy-and-build strategy in its chosen international markets.

It is our goal to develop a complete suite of services for Health & Safety and environmental testing, inspection and consultancy, and with LDC on board as our investment partner we have a real opportunity to do just that!
