Cairngorm Capital Case Studies
EMED Group is the UK’s leading specialist healthcare transport provider. The Group was formed with the merger of E-zec and ERS and has established a compelling proposition to local communities across four divisions: EMED Patient care, EMED Community care, EMED Safe care & EMED Courier services.
Cairngorm Capital initially invested in E-zec in May 2021, backing Craig Smith as CEO to transform the company by hiring 25 new senior management across People, Operations, Fleet and Business Strategy. E-zec mergerd with ERS Medical on 1 February 2023 to establish a group of nearly 3,000 staff, 1,100 vehicles and 45 operating depots across the UK and with revenues greater than £110m.
The group supports the movement of over 2,500 patients a day with the majority being new patients to E-zec services.
The development of specialist SEN, Courier and Mental Health services sees highly skilled staff provide the highest level of care and support to wider communities. A data rich, technology enabled service offering underpins a patient first, logistics second business proposition.
Cairngorm Capital’s investment builds on investments under the Ageing in Place thesis and combines specialist sector operational expertise with financial support from Cairngorm Capital.
