Lucion acquires Aberdeenshire radiation consultancy ARPS

Environmental services provider Lucion Group has acquired Aberdeen Radiation Protection Services (ARPS), in a strategic deal aimed at bolstering the company’s presence in Scotland.

Founded in 2001, Westhill-based ARPS provides radiation protection services to a range of businesses including the oil and gas, nuclear and medical sectors.

It specialises in providing radiation protection advice, radioactive waste advice and dangerous goods safety advice and training.

Lucion is backed by private equity investor Palatine and has 500 employees across the UK. The Gateshead-based firm has an existing office in Glasgow but said the addition of ARPS would strengthen its Scottish presence and its capabilities in the nuclear sector.

ARPS has around 15 staff, all of whom will continue to work for the company, with the support of the wider Lucion team, a spokesperson confirmed.

The value of the acquisition was not disclosed.

ARPS’ core focus is the provision of radiation protection services to the energy sector, though it also serves the waste management industry with solutions, including naturally occurring radioactive material (NORM) decontamination and disposal.

It also provides an online NORM waste management tool called the RMDD (Radioactive Material Disposals Database) which tracks disposals throughout the year for each site, enabling companies to submit required annual returns to BEIS or relevant environment agencies.

Lucion managing director of testing and inspection Adam Mead said ARPS had established an “excellent reputation in the sector” over the last two decades and that its expertise and contacts were “welcome additions” to the company’s existing services.

ARPS managing director Matt Brodie added that: “ARPS has built a strong reputation for providing high-quality radiation protection services to clients in the UK and abroad.

“Despite recent challenges presented by a global pandemic we never stood still, and when presented with the opportunity to join a progressive market leader like Lucion Group our team immediately recognised the synergies and saw it is a fantastic opportunity for ARPS to continue to develop its strategy and vision.”

Lucion Group CEO Phil Rozier added that 2022 offered “good visibility over continued organic growth” alongside a “strong pipeline” of further acquisitions under the company’s consideration.
