Triton acquires Chevron Traffic Management

Funds advised by Triton have successfully completed the acquisition of Chevron Traffic Management (Chevron TM), a UK-based Work Zone Safety Services provider. The company has been acquired from Portchester Equity Limited, a UK private equity firm for an undisclosed sum.

Following the acquisitions of Ramudden in Sweden and AVS in Germany, in December 2017 and January 2018, Chevron TM is Triton’s third acquisition within the broader European market for Work Zone Safety Services.
“We want to support the management and employees of this business by investing in and supporting the growth and development of the company. We will contribute our strategic insights from the industry and region. We look forward to working together with the management team and the Board of Directors in building a stronger company,” says Peder Prahl, Director of the General Partner for the Triton funds.
“This will be our first opportunity in the UK. We are very happy with the transaction as Chevron is a great company in a market with a strong positive momentum,” adds Carl Johan Falkenberg, Investment Advisory Professional and Advisor to the Triton funds.
“This is our third investment into the European work zone safety services market and a leading example of Triton’s Business Services team successfully working across geographies on the back of repeatable investment themes,” adds Nadia Meier-Kirner, Investment Advisory Professional and Advisor to the Triton funds.
Founded in 1997 and headquartered in Thame, Chevron TM employs more than 400 people at ten regional depots across the UK. The company has annual sales in excess of GBP65 million.
“Triton is a great strategic match for us with a track-record of ownership in the safety services sector. We have grown as successfully as a company and in partnership with Triton, we believe we will be able to continue our strategic journey to create an even stronger value proposition,” says Tim Cockayne, Managing Director of Chevron TM.
