NVM invested £3 million in the management buy-out of Lanner in March 2010 and has pro-actively supported the business throughout its ownership, helping the management team to grow and develop the company.

Lanner specialises in predictive simulation for industrial clients. Their technology connects physical assets, processes and resources into a single digital model that delivers actionable insights to make business operations and supply chains more resilient and efficient. The sale to Royal HaskoningDHV supports their strategy to offer services in which its extensive engineering and consultancy knowledge is combined with data-driven and technology-based solutions. Combining Lanner’s and Royal HaskoningDHV’s extensive engineering and consultancy knowledge means they are able to better advise and support clients with running sustainable businesses and offers the potential for Lanner to scale more rapidly.

“NVM’s support has been excellent, they have a flexible and pragmatic approach with just the right balance to enable to us achieve this goal and to help us get to this next chapter of Lanner’s development. I personally want to thank James for his support to me as CEO during this period, always available for advice and with the necessary sense of humour.”

David Jones, CEO at Lanner Group
