The CTS Group portfolio has been developed and expanded over time, with a successful track record of acquisitions recently, including CGL Limited in November 2020, Nicholls Colton in February 2021, and Silkstone Environmental in August 2021. In purchasing Mason Evans, CTS is enhancing and extending its existing capabilities, further strengthening its offering and broadening its geographic coverage into Scotland.

“CTS already has a strong footprint in Scotland, offering industry-leading materials testing services. This latest acquisition sees us broaden our geographical coverage within Scotland, supports our overall growth strategy, and focuses on delivering market-leading construction testing solutions to our clients. It further strengthens our position in the UK construction testing and consulting market and provides numerous synergies and opportunities that benefit both CTS and our clients. Both the business and I are excited about working with Niall Lawless and welcoming the Mason Evans team to the CTS Group. This acquisition complements the CGL, Nicholls Colton, and Silkstone deals announced previously and reinforces our commitment to growth.

Managing Director Niall Lawless said, “This is an exciting step for Mason Evans, and I’m delighted to be continuing as Managing Director supporting the future growth of the combined business and integration process. Since starting in 1995, Mason Evans has been providing high-quality geo-environmental consultancy, and now existing clients will also benefit from CTS’s extensive experience and knowledge within the testing, inspection, and compliance industry”.

“Niall and the team’s significant knowledge and experience in the energy and waste management, land engineering, and geotechnical engineering market, combined with CTS’s national network of construction testing laboratories and site teams, will strengthen our growing testing solution and environmental monitoring services. We are increasing our service capacity to clients and enabling them to select us as their go-to partner of choice for all construction testing and environmental monitoring related services.” continued Phil.
