About Rigby Group

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 grown and evolved over the last four decades — through smart, strategic acquisitions — into a £1.8bn British success story with over 7,500 employees

Within the organisation there are six key divisions:

  • Technology (SCC — Europe’s largest independent IT services business)
  • Airports (Regional & City Airports, Norwich Airport, Exeter Airport and Coventry Airport)
  • Hotels (the Eden Hotel Collection)
  • Real Estate (Rigby & Rigby super prime property development, Rigby Group Real Estate and Imperial Park, Coventry)
  • Aviation (British International Helicopters and Capital Air Ambulance)
  • 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.

You will see a clear difference in the Rigby approach by the fact that we are trusted by customers and partners; dedicated to delivery; committed to our 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. We are renowned for 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 four decades — creating a £4bn business by 2025 that will make Rigby Group, arguably, the most successful wholly-owned family business the UK has ever produced.
