H2 Equity Partners receives “Operational Excellence” award for Jet Group investment

H2 Equity Partners (“H2”) are pleased to announce that they have received the “Operational Excellence” award from Private Equity International in the category lower mid-market EMEA for the investment in JET Group.

H2 received the award for its active role in supporting management in integrating three former individual companies into one strong group, optimising its manufacturing footprint, improving organic growth and realising international expansion of JET. As a result both revenue and EBITDA of the company increased substantially during H2’s holding period. H2 exited JET Group successfully earlier this year.

The winners of the Private Equity International Operational Excellence Awards have been selected by a panel of industry and private equity experts across several regions. H2 aims to build on its 23 year track record to deliver strong returns for our investors and provide hands on support for our portfolio companies.

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.
