H2 Equity Partners (“H2”) is pleased to announce its investment in Motive Offshore Group (“Motive”) alongside its Founders and management team. 

Headquartered in Banff, Scotland, Motive is a Founder-owned and managed business which rents, certifies, inspects and sells winches and other back-deck equipment used in offshore energy infrastructure. The business is growing rapidly supported by the successful transition to renewables and its strengthening international footprint.

Following H2’s investment, its Founders, David Acton and James Gregg, will continue to lead the business and work closely with H2 to deliver the next phase of Motive’s ambitious growth strategy and build on the progress made in transitioning to renewables.

The investment represents the first of H2 Equity Partners Fund VI, a £300 million fund, which like Fund V, will focus on acquiring, strengthening and growing fundamentally attractive businesses headquartered in the United Kingdom, Ireland or the Benelux.

The Amberon Group is a market leading traffic management provider to the utilities and Local Authority markets. Amberon was established in May 2002 with our first depot in Paignton, South West England. Our founding core principles remain at the heart of everything that we do and our continued desire to achieve our purpose; to provide the best service in the Traffic Management sector. This has been the foundation for our success and has cemented our position as the market leader in TM.

During the initial transaction we never felt under any pressure & instantly recognised we would become part of the family. H2 took the time to listen to our views & business strategy, it was obvious from the very beginning that they would be the perfect partner for us.

The guys at H2 have enabled us to continue the momentum & have provided the expertise & knowledge to help us continue on the journey to constantly improve our service offering.

Working with H2 during the last 2 years has given us additional support not just financially but the advice & expertise has helped analytically & strategically.

The ambition and the drive H2 have is extremely infectious & continues to assist the group to overachieve.

It’s enormously reassuring to know H2 will always be at the end of the phone to offer advice but heartening to know they have the trust in us to deliver.
