Specialist transportation company SCP joins the RSK Group

January 26, 2022

RSK Group Ltd, a leading environmental, engineering and sustainability solutions provider, is delighted to be strengthening its transport planning and infrastructure design capability with the acquisition of SCP (Singleton Clamp & Partners Ltd).

SCP is a specialist transportation planning, highway and drainage infrastructure design consultancy that has been offering multi-disciplinary professional services to the private and public sector since 1991.

Employing 45 people based in offices in Manchester, Leeds and London – SCP provides an integrated range of services to clients across the country, from advice and support at the earliest master planning stages of development proposals, through detailed assessments for approvals processes and through the implementation stages.

The business also has long established expert witness relationships with planning barristers across the UK.

This acquisition significantly strengthens RSK’s existing transport planning services and introduces a new suite of solutions in infrastructure planning and design – markets which are expected to grow in the years to come.

SCP will retain its brand as existing directors David Roberts, Jim Budd, Steven Carmody and David Young all continue to drive the business forwards.

This is the first acquisition completed by RSK in 2022 and the 26th this financial year as the group continues to deliver on its 2025 Growth Strategy.

RSK is now comprised of over 120 businesses employing over 8000 people around the world.

The group is seeing an unprecedented demand for its services as clients are now acting with urgency to progress towards a more sustainable future.

RSK expects this trend to continue and has set out to strengthen the group in direct response to this, striving to become a global leader in the delivery of sustainability solutions.

Alan Ryder, founder and CEO of RSK said, “We are thrilled to welcome everyone at SCP into the group.  The expertise in SCP greatly advances our position in the UK transport and infrastructure markets, areas where we expect to see growth over the coming years.

“Thanks to many years of consistent, high-quality delivery and a focus on strong relationships, SCP has earned a very good reputation with clients and the wider industry.  With the additional support of our many related specialisms, we anticipate this will only be further enhanced.”

David Roberts added:“SCP is a brand that we are proud to have established over some 30 years, and maintaining that brand shows the great faith that RSK have in our team and the successes that have been achieved so far.

“We have a combined desire to grow the business further and the commitment to retain the existing SCP leadership and work together as part of the wider RSK business is a combination that provides a future that we very much look forward to.

🌎 As a global leader in the delivery of sustainable solutions, we won’t shy away from our role in the huge task the world faces – this has guided our growth over the last year.

💚 We strive for sustainability in all that we do and our commitment to this has been reaffirmed in our FY22 sustainability report.

😮 Natural wetlands are disappearing three times faster than forests: 35% of global wetlands were lost between 1970 and 2015, and overall, 85% have been lost since the 1700s.

💧 It's #WorldWetlandsDay, which aims to raise awareness of the vital role of wetlands for people and the planet.

💚 We need to change our mindset around these essential habitats and their importance.
