Future Industrial Services

Future Industrial Services (FIS), based in Merseyside, works with Government, major utility, and multi-national blue-chip companies to provide essential and specialist environmental and industrial services. The business operates the only industrial-scale mercury recovery facility in the UK and offers several sustainable services to support customers in processing waste responsibly and improve their contribution to the circular economy.

Throughout the Investment period NorthEdge has supported FIS in improving its ESG credentials, including investments in the team and facilities, completing three strategic acquisitions to expand its sustainable service offerings and geographical coverage across the UK, and supporting growth in SDG-aligned revenues which has led to significant margin improvement throughout the hold period.

David Lusher, CEO of Future Industrial Services said: “With the support of NorthEdge, FIS has been on a phenomenal growth journey. I am extremely grateful for their unwavering support and belief in our business over the last five years. Since investment, the NorthEdge team have supported us to restructure the business to drive commercial and operational efficiencies, and continuously encouraged us to invest in and evolve our approach to ESG, which has seen us make improvements to our business in every area.

"Our QHSE performance is critical for us to maintain operating licences; our approach to people has supported our business to grow; and the launch of a number of new sustainable services has allowed us to support our customers to achieve their ESG goals. As a result, we have become a more sustainable business in every sense of the word and successfully created meaningful value for all of our stakeholders.”
