Hickton Quality Control Ltd


Hickton Quality Control Ltd was founded in 1991 and today is the UK’s leading independent provider of Quality Site Inspectors which include specialist Clerks of Works and NEC supervisors to monitor the quality of UK construction projects. Services include Clerk of Works (Building, M&E and Landscaping), NEC supervision, technical reviews, auditing & coaching and condition surveys.

In March 2020, Hickton Group Ltd was formed which is the holding company comprising four individual businesses, Hickton Consultants Ltd, BRCS (Building Control) Ltd, Cook Brown Building Control Ltd and Cook Brown Energy Ltd. Each business remains independent but with the added value of the group key strengths. In March 2021 Millington Lord Limited was acquired by Hickton Group Ltd. Millington Lord is the holding company for Morgan Lambert Limited and Qualitas Compliance Limited. The services provided by Morgan Lambert and Qualitas Compliance are complementary to the quality-focused activities of the current Clerks of Works and Corporate Approved Inspector businesses within Hickton Group Limited.

Why Hickton Consultants Ltd chose to partner with CEPS

The partnership with CEPS allowed the founder of the business, Tony Hickton, to retire whilst keeping his wish for the business not to become part of a conglomerate after his retirement and for the existing management team and personnel to be retained.

The Managing Director, Tony Mobbs, has maintained business operations as normal with a smooth transition into the group. He leads a highly motivated team who successfully manage the day-to-day operations of the business and the company continues to provide an award-winning service for its nationwide clients.

The benefits of being part of the group

Tony Mobbs finds being part of CEPS is reassuring and the partnership has added value to the company since joining the group in 2016. As well as financial management by financial accounting professionals, the company benefits from having access to high level business support which brings insight and strategic direction to the business.

The CEPS team bring valuable strategic skills and insight into my business. They are a professional team that have a good perception relating to market and financial trends. It was CEPS’ directors who saw the possibility of forming Hickton Group Ltd and managed the operational process, which was a successful strategic decision
