Rigby Group is the multinational, service-based holding company for a portfolio of privately owned and highly successful businesses operating across Europe and the Middle East.
Diversifying from its origins as a principally technology-led business, Rigby Group has evolved across the last 43 years – through smart, strategic acquisitions totalling to date 140 companies in 20 countries, generating £2.4bn turnover and over 8,500+ 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, Bournemouth Airport and XLR Executive Jet Centres), Hotels (the Eden Hotel Collection), Real Estate (Allect super-prime property development and Rigby Group Real Estate), Aviation (British International Helicopters, Patriot Aviation and Capital Air Ambulance), and Finance (Rigby Private Equity and Rigby Capital).
Rigby Group is a values-led business built around three core principles: foresight, working hard and enabling others. We liberate companies within our Group to be the very best they can be, by providing expert and highly personal leadership and swift yet sound decision making, always with an eye firmly on the long-term outcome.
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.
Agile, disciplined and brave, Rigby Group is a trusted partner to government, the military, global corporations, major charities and thousands of medium-sized organisations and is 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.
We are on track towards our target of doubling the achievements of the past 43 years – creating business with £1bn market value by 2025 that will make Rigby Group, arguably, the most successful wholly-owned family business the UK has ever produced.
