EMS Group backed by £7m funding package

4 June 2021

Chester-based EMS Group has secured a £7m funding package to aid its production of mobile medical vehicles.

Leading audit, tax and consulting firm RSM’s debt advisory team has helped EMS Group secure a total funding package of £7m from ThinCats to support an ambitious growth strategy.

EMS Group employs 56 staff and works with both public and private healthcare providers.

The ThinCats funding will allow further investment in the company's fleet as the business expands its service into clinical trials after being awarded a large-scale trial that will begin in August in conjunction with the NHS and a major UK research institution.

RSM's Ashley Suter, Kevin Le and Jack Williams advised EMS Group on the funding deal.

Suter said: "Today's investment will support the EMS Group to manufacture more units to help the NHS recover after the Covid-19 pandemic, delivering extra capacity to meet the increased demand while providing innovative marketing suites to support brands once the restrictions are lifted."
