The acquisitions just keep on coming for PIB Group.

The firm, the name behind PIB Insurance, Citynet Insurance Brokers, Fish Insurance, Cooke & Mason, Thistle Insurance Services, Channel Insurance Brokers and others, has today swooped for Lincsafe (Health & Safety) Limited. The latter, based in Market Rasen, Lincolnshire, was formed back in 1993 and is a specialist health and safety advisory – it represents PIB’s 15th acquisition since February, 2016.

Lincsafe’s primary focus is on project inspections, while it also trains staff on health and safety matters. At its head is John Lacey, past president of IOSH, who founded the firm – and he is set to remain with the business after the deal is completed.

“I’m delighted that Lincsafe is joining forces with PIB Group,” he said. “We will continue to enjoy serving our clients across the UK for their health and safety needs, however, the opportunity to become part of a wider group and access further resources and investment is very exciting. We are looking forward to working closely with the PIB Risk Management team to further broaden their services and start exploring opportunities and synergies.”

The business will become part of PIB’s new ‘PIB Risk Management’ division which unifies Ford Risk Management with Sigerson Associates.

“I’m very pleased to welcome John and his team to PIB Group,” added Brendan Mcmanus (pictured), CEO of PIB Group. “The business has been established in the health and safety sector for 25 years and their specialist skills and experience are a great addition to our growing risk management division. We have around 30 consultants representing a wide range of risk management services that we can provide to our clients. We fully intend on investing more over the next 12 months.”
