Rigby Group plc is the parent company for a portfolio of family-owned and highly successful businesses operating across Europe and the Middle East. Diversifying from its origins as a principally technology-led business, Rigby Group plc has evolved across the last 41 years - through smart, strategic acquisitions - into a £1.8bn British success story with over 7,500 employees.
Rigby Group comprises six key divisions: Technology (SCC – Europe’s largest independent IT services business), Airports (Regional & City Airports, Norwich Airport, Exeter Airport, Coventry Airport and XLR Executive Jet Centres), Hotels (the Eden Hotel Collection), Real Estate (Rigby & Rigby superprime property development, Rigby Group Real Estate and Imperial Park, Coventry), Aviation (British International Helicopters and Capital Air Ambulance), and Finance (Rigby Private Equity, Rigby Investments and Rigby Capital).
Rigby Group is a values-led business built around five core principles: operational excellence, independent thinking, building partnerships, working with passion and caring for our stakeholders.
Rigby Group measures success against its aspirations to be trusted by customers and partners; dedicated to delivery; committed to its people; drivers of innovation and passionate about the business and its growth. We are trusted partners to government, the military, global corporations, major charities and thousands of medium-sized organisations and proud to be part of the West Midlands economic powerhouse, supporting job creation and enterprise.
Rigby Group is also environmentally responsible and active in the community. Our Charitable Trust supports a wide range of causes relating to lifelong learning, health and education and our employees participate in initiatives that not only benefit society, but their own development too.
With two generations of the Rigby family at the helm, Rigby Group has built a distinguished reputation as both an investor and business operator; renowned for its independent thinking, seamless execution and a peerless approach to acquiring and nurturing businesses to unleash their potential.
Our target, within the next decade, is to double the achievements of the past 41 years - creating a £4bn business by 2025 that will make Rigby Group, arguably, the most successful wholly-owned family business the UK has ever produced.
