SafeLane Global CEO, Adam Ainsworth said: "When the opportunity to meet the Raeburn family first presented itself, I was delighted by the shared person-centric values our companies held, and it was from this position we were able to negotiate a mutually beneficial acquisition plan.

"The acquisitions mean SafeLane will now offer an even wider range of services to many different sectors of course, but fundamentally it will remain a business of people… our people are our company's greatest asset and we're delighted to be welcoming Raeburn's expert personnel into the SafeLane family."

The acquisition of the site investigation suite of companies fits into SafeLane Global's strategy of accelerated growth via strategic mergers and acquisitions. By purchasing Raeburn Drilling, Raeburn Drilling Northern, DTS Raeburn, Terra Tek and Allied Exploration & Geotechnics and integrating them into SafeLane's UK Land business unit, this will enable the offering of a turnkey site investigation solution to the entire preconstruction phase in the UK.

Raeburn Drilling director Anne Baxter said: "This is a very exciting day for the entire group of companies. We've always been focused on growth and innovation, and now with our acquisition by SafeLane Global we'll be able to innovate with greater speed, efficiency, and capability for our clients."
