W.H. Scott's story

Renatus partnered with Patrick Doyle, W.H. Scott’s Managing Director, to support the exit of the previous shareholders and provide a liquidity event for the rolling shareholders. With 25+ years of experience in the lifting industry, Renatus backed Patrick Doyle and his team to grow W.H. Scott into a market leader in UK&I.

With its operational HQ in Co. Wicklow, W.H. Scott has evolved in recent years to become a complete lifting solutions provider. Its model sees it provide supply, erect, detect and inspect solutions on lifting equipment for customers across the utilities, construction and manufacturing sectors.

The Group now operates from 9 sites across UK&I with four operating entities – W.H. Scott, Hiltonne Engineering, Re-Ropes and Metlab.

This is Renatus’ tenth investment, and its first from its new €60m fund, which is backed by the Ireland Strategic Investment Fund (“ISIF”).

Key Milestones

  • Bolt-on acquisition of Metlab.
  • Multiple key strategic hires.
  • Support on the development and execution of a focused M&A strategy in UK&I.
