LCM Environmental’s long-term goal has been to provide further mechanical and electrical services to their ever-growing customer base.

As one of the UK’s leading suppliers of fuel quality and tank safety services, LCM Environmental are delighted to announce that on 21 October 2022, they acquired the South Midland Installation (SMI) Ltd business and have combined the two companies. This allows them to further increase their operational capacity, service range and add valuable technical knowledge to their existing team of specialists.

The primarily Aylesbury-based SMI operate nationwide and have a rich history in the industry, providing a broad range of design, install and commissioning services, and join LCM with in-house fluid handling consultants, engineers, electricians, and designers.

Richard Wallace, CEO at LCM Environmental Services Ltd, comments:

“This acquisition is exciting, and I am thrilled to welcome the SMI team into the LCM business. Our company is growing exponentially, and this is the first of many positive announcements to be made in the coming months.

The acquisition of an already developed and experienced company, such as South Midland Installation, provides us with new equipment, a range of new services, further industry knowledge, and adds value to our already expertly trained team of specialists. Increasing our mechanical and electrical in-house capabilities has been a long-term goal of LCM Environmental, and we are happy to see this milestone reached.

Both businesses have over 30 years of experience in their respective industry areas, so I am confident that working together, we will enhance our offering to our constantly growing customer base.”

John Burgess, Director of South Midland Installation Ltd, comments:

“We are excited to be joining the team at LCM Environmental, as it will allow us to drastically increase our capacity and ability to deliver mechanical and electrical solutions to a wider audience. The collaboration between the teams will run smoothly, as both companies are focused on ensuring our clients receive a first class dedicated and professional service.”
