Nevis group

Nevis Capital was established in 2007 to bring something different to the private equity market. The common thread of our team was LCH Generators which was set up by John and James Pirrie in 1980 and grew to be the largest independent generator hire company in the UK. Brian Aitken was a Corporate Finance Director at PricewaterhouseCoopers and led the sale of LCH to Speedy Hire plc in 2006.

John, James, Brian and Ian work tremendously well together and share the same values. Nevis Capital was set up to reinvest their money, skills and experience into a portfolio of businesses across the UK that they could help and support.

The team and portfolio┬áhas grown but our approach is the same – we provide capital and skills to help businesses grow and develop. We provide much more than just money and bring:

  • A mindset for growth
  • A partnership approach
  • Deep hands-on experience of growing businesses across various sectors
  • A track record of success
  • An extensive network
  • Operational, financial and management expertise
  • A positive ‘can-do’ energy.
