Industrial Services

Heidrick & Struggles’ Industrial Services team of experts serves as a trusted advisor to corporations and executives participating in the sector. Through dynamic activity in this market, we maintain close consultative dialogue with companies and sponsors, while proactively developing relationships with established and next-generation senior talent.

Players in the industrial services sector benefit from a positive macro environment including a continued increase of non-core functions outsourcing, rising demand for operational safety in aging assets, and stringent regulations related to energy efficiency, security, and environmental matters. However, the constant consolidation, expansion, and financialization of the sector calls for higher levels of professionalized management and skills sophistication.

Our clients include private equity, publicly-traded, and family-owned companies engaged in complex, business-to-business activity with distributed, branch-based, route-based, and related business models. We also advise manufacturing companies, for whom aftermarket services and parts have become a strategic activity as they seek to provide a solutions-oriented, consultative approach to customers. We have expertise in verticals including facility services, environmental and waste services, infrastructure and asset integrity, maintenance and repair, test and inspection, and equipment rental.
