RSK’s growth through acquisition strategy is advancing in Europe, with leading Danish geotechnical engineering consultancy service 4AP-Geoteknik joining the group as part of RSK’s expansion into the Nordic region.
4AP-Geoteknik specialises in land-based geotechnical services and owns and operates three vehicle-mounted drilling rigs. It supplies in-house drilling equipment and assets and has a laboratory for sample testing and analysis.
With its headquarters in Hadsten, Denmark, the company works across Jutland, Funen and Zealand. Its clients come from within the construction, housebuilding, engineering, utility, industrial and public sectors. It is widely recognised for its provision of top-tier services, including groundworks and investigation, testing and monitoring, calculations, advisory and design.
4AP-Geoteknik has identified the geotechnical advisory (design) and larger projects in the energy sector as the areas for future growth, sectors in which RSK Group companies have significant experience.
Managing Director Peter Frederiksen, who will continue to lead the business, said: “Being a part of RSK gives new opportunities for 4AP-Geoteknik and its employees. It enables us to grow and develop more than would have been possible alone. We are proud to be part of RSK’s journey into the Nordic region.”
RSK Group Chief Executive Officer Alan Ryder said: “The acquisition of 4AP-Geoteknik is RSK’s first in the Nordic region, and we are delighted to have initiated our growth here with a company that has built up a solid reputation for client satisfaction since its inception in 1978. We are keen to support 4AP-Geoteknik on its continuing geographic and sector growth, working with RSK companies and clients across Europe.”
