Silver Celebration for One-Stop Shop

ADI Group was established by Alan Lusty in 1990 with a vision to develop a one-stop engineering shop for the manufacturing industry: a quarter of a century on, that is exactly what he has achieved.
“We developed a strategy to focus on particular disciplines,” explains Alan.

“Starting with electrical installation, we then moved on to electrical design and electrical panels. After five years we had established a specialism for electrical work so we moved on to mechanical engineering.”

By adopting such a strategic approach, Alan and his co-directors established an organisation that now employs over 450 people across 16 separate companies with a turnover of £60m. The strength of ADI’s strategy is clear to see when looking at its impressive customer list which includes renowned names such as Rolls Royce, Coca-Cola, Jaguar Land Rover, Cadburys and BP.

Higgs & Sons has played an integral role in ADI’s success over the past 10 years. During this time the firm has developed a relationship with Alan which goes beyond simply advising on matters of the law.

“Because of the make-up of the company and how it has developed, there hasn’t always been the opportunity to bounce ideas off other people,” explain Alan Lusty. “But the nature of our relationship with Nick Taylor and his team at Higgs has provided that service.”

Partner Nick Taylor is delighted that Higgs has been on hand to aid with the company’s development.

“We started off providing ADI with advice on wills and shareholders agreements. However 10 years on, I believe we have become trusted advisers to Alan and his team, and we are very proud of how that relationship has developed. Just as ADI offers a one-stop shop to its customers, so Higgs is able to offer a holistic, comprehensive service to clients such as Alan and his team.

"And with 2015 being such a significant year for both our organisations, everyone at Higgs & Sons is keen to wish Alan and the entire team a very happy anniversary.”
