Herefordshire-based SafeLane Global has acquired five Raeburn Group companies, allowing it to expand its pre-construction, site investigation service offering.

Bristol-based wealth management company Tilney Smith & Williamson, advised SafeLane Global on the acquisition.

SafeLane, based in Ross-on-Wye, acquired the companies from the Raeburn Group in a carve-out transaction.

SafeLane Global CEO Adam Ainsworth said the company already offered a full range of unexploded ordnance risk (UXO) mitigation services, as well as water borehole, geothermal, geophysical, and engineering services.

“The acquired companies will be added to that unit and will enable SafeLane to offer a turnkey site investigation solution that covers the entire pre-construction phase,” he said.

Queen’s Award for Enterprise winner SafeLane was established in 1989 under the brand name MINECLEAR; its origins lie in mine action and explosive threat mitigation. Following strategic mergers and acquisitions, the company today has offices and operations around the world, including a well-respected footprint in the UK.

The acquired companies will be joining the UK Land business unit, which formerly traded as BACTEC. The business unit currently offers the full suite of unexploded ordnance risk mitigation services, as well as water borehole, geothermal, geophysical, and engineering services.
