Burgess Diagnostics, the provider of mobile imaging services to the veterinary sector, has secured backing from Leeds-based investment fund Solingen Private Equity.
Mike Hadfield, managing director of Burgess, said: “We are confident that with Solingen’s hands-on approach and understanding of our business they are the perfect investment partner for Burgess at this stage in our development journey.”
Burgess was founded in 2003 to provide MRI and CT scanning services to veterinary surgeons and pet owners. The company has since grown a network of 65 scanning sites across the UK. This new funding will allow Burgess, who are based in Preston, to further invest in new scanners and grow the number of UK veterinary establishments it services.
Adrian Ballam, who acted for Solingen in the transaction, said: “We are delighted to have completed our first acquisition for Solingen. There are ambitious plans to develop Burgess Diagnostics and we look forward to supporting the team to continue the growth and success of this business.”
