Change and growth
LR has undergone significant change and growth over recent years, having grown to a £1 billion-turnover service provider with over 9,000 employees worldwide and over 60,000 clients, from from SMEs to Fortune 500 companies. We have undertaken the acquisitions of ODS, Human Engineering, ModuSpec, Scandpower and West Engineering. The organisation has also restructured to create the Lloyd’s Register Foundation as the parent entity, invested in technology leadership through its global technology centres, diversified its services further into energy and rail, and expanded its management systems business, LRQA. In September 2013, we announced a significant investment in Senergy, an integrated energy services company.
