In recent years the business has added specialist high hazard services and fire risk assessments to provide full turnkey solutions to its blue-chip customer base. In 2016 FPG was recognised as one of the fastest growing businesses in the sector.

Ewan Grant, Partner and head of Corporate Finance for Scotland at RSM commented:

‘The sale to Scutum International represents the next stage of growth in FPG’s history as the combined business seeks to expand its footprint and deliver industry leading solutions to its customers both in the UK and international marketplace.’
