News: New owner of Events Solutions sees few barriers to growth


Rotherham crowd control specialist, Events Solutions, has been acquired by entrepreneur Richard Herberts in a management buyout.

Based at Kiveton Park, Events Solutions provides crowd control and barrier systems for public gatherings of all sizes, from village fetes to film premieres, concerts, festivals and major sporting events.

Having been involved in the business since its inception more than ten years ago, it will now form part of Herberts' portfolio of businesses, which includes Worksop-based RDS Transport, provider of refrigerated delivery services to the food industry.

Richard Herberts, said: "Events Solutions has developed a fantastic network of contacts and undertakes interesting, high profile work across the UK. I believe through investment in new systems and the brand itself, we can increase our capacity and reputation to produce tangible benefits in a relatively short space of time.

"Events Solutions has great potential for growth and is quickly becoming a key player in the entertainment and sports industries. Whilst the work is competitive and demanding, it is also exciting and has proved relatively recession proof to date. I have every confidence in our operations manager, James Wood and his capable team have the skills and experience to take the business forward and prove my investment is a good move."

Sheffield solicitors, Taylor & Emmet and accountancy firm Landin Wilcock and Co represented Herberts and finance was provided by Handelsbanken in Rotherham.
