RSK Hi-Line Ltd
November 29, 2021

The team here at Hi-Line are extremely excited to announce that we will be joining RSK Group Ltd. 


The acquisition is a positive step forward for Hi-Line, and will see day-to-day business continue unchanged, for all 210+ employees, based across the South and Southwest. For RSK, Hi-Line help to strengthen RSK’s offering in arboriculture, tree cutting and groundwork, bringing substantial additional coverage in the South and Southwest of England. Hi-Line will complement RSK’s existing tree cutting business, BTS, as another strong brand with a robust range of clients. 

Hugh Griffiths will continue as Hi-Line’s Managing Director, supported by the existing management team. Hugh added, “Joining forces with RSK is a great outcome for Hi-Line and our employees.  I’m looking forward to getting to know my new colleagues across the group and exploring how we can work together to benefit of our clients.” 

Alan Ryder, RSK Founder and CEO commented, “I am pleased to welcome Hi-Line and their 210-strong workforce into the group.  RSK has been strategically building our technical service capabilities for several years as we want to be able to provide our clients with complete solutions throughout the entire lifespan of their projects.  Tree surgery is a great example of this strategy in practice.  Hi-Line is a very well-placed business, ripe for future growth.”    

Hi-Line will become part of RSK’s Agriculture, Land and Property Management division under the direction of Ian Strudwick, Divisional Director, and a member of the RSK Group Limited Board of Directors. Ian commented: “I’m really excited to have Hugh and the whole team at Hi-Line join forces with RSK.  Hi-Line has fantastic relationships with several key clients, no doubt because of the excellent service they have provided for many years. By joining RSK, the business will have the ability to grow far more than they would have had alone.”
