Chesterfield-based infrastructure construction firm acquired

RD Capital Partners (RDCP) has completed the acquisition of Killingley, a multi-functional civil engineering, commercial landscaping, and grounds maintenance firm.

Based in Chesterfield, Killingley was established in 1972 and is RDCP’s first acquisition in the infrastructure and engineering sector. Killingley employs 120 staff members and has an annual turnover of £16 million. Their client base is broad, working across a mix of local councils, public bodies, private enterprises, architects and some of the UK’s leading construction companies.

Established in 2015 by Sameer Rizvi and Iryna Dubylovska, RDCP now controls £60 million of investments and employs 400 full-time staff members across their core sectors of healthcare, infrastructure and real estate.
Sameer Rizvi, CEO and Founder of RDCP, says: “We are pleased to have had the opportunity to acquire such an impressive business, led by a fantastic Managing Director, Gareth Dillon. Him and his team deliver market-leading work across all spectrums of their projects.

“Our vision for 2020 is to build a presence in three key sectors: healthcare, infrastructure, and real estate. We are proud to have solely focused on healthcare and real estate since inception in 2015. However, we now have the scale as well as the access to debt markets that will allow us to establish meaningful presence in a number of sectors. In order to build a future-proof business, we need to be diversified across uncorrelated sectors.

“We were attracted to Killingley because of their excellent reputation and track record of success and are committed to working with Gareth and his team to deliver long-term growth strategies. The company boasts a strong background in infrastructure and engineering works and has an impressive portfolio of clients across the UK. We are very excited about working with the team and fuelling further growth. It will be business as usual for the clients and staff members of Killingley.”

Gareth Dillon, Managing Director of Killingley, says: “I am delighted to welcome Sameer and Iryna to the Killingley team and look forward to working with them to continue the successful refocusing of the business following our recent restructuring. It is a testament to the hard work and dedication of everyone at Killingley that RDCP have recognised this opportunity, and have made a significant investment in further securing the growth of the company at a difficult time for the wider construction sector. This is a hugely positive move for the company and will only enhance our future development plans.”

Funding to support the deal was provided by Neil Sharp of finance brokers TML Finance and Advisory, who structured an undisclosed bespoke lending package to assist RDCP. “It was great to see all the moving parts align both from the start to the final agreement and naturally the lending side which we worked hard on. We have an extensive background in working on these types of deals for clients and it’s always good to put that experience to good use for a positive outcome.”

Help us maintain our standards of journalism

Readers across the region enjoy our news site but keeping our news up to date and authoritative, without charging readers to view the site is a challenge. Especially now with the Corona Virus measures affecting us all, as many clients have been severely affected and are naturally reducing their spend on advertisements. Given this lack of revenue stream we are calling on the generosity of our readers to help us fill that void and enable our journalists to continue delivering the news that you enjoy.

Unlike many other news sites, we don't have annoying pop ups or charge scandalous prices for events. We also produce printed magazines for each title and we make these freely available to read on line too, for your enjoyment. Often, people have asked why we don't make a charge for viewers to read these magazines and news stories but we feel that would adversely affect our readership/advertisers response rate. But with advertising revenues now severely affected we need your help. So, if you can support our news sites/magazines with either a small donation of even £1, or a subscription to our magazine, which costs from just £33.60 per year, (inc p&P and mailed direct to your door) your generosity will help us weather the current storm and continue in our quest to deliver quality journalism.

We value your readership and your support, as this enables us to continue to provide our regular daily news updates. We've been established over 30 years, during which we've lost count of the numerous recessions and financial meltdowns, and we intend to weather the storms caused by Covid-19. So, every reader contribution, however big or small, is invaluable in helping us to get through this. Please click here to help support your favourite news site/magazine.
