He successfully guided the business to be part of a triple million pound turnover which included Highways Magazine, Highways on Fridays, Smart Highways, 7Days in ITS and Seeing is Believing (now Traffex Live).

In 2016 Alad Ltd was sold to the Hemming Group. Neil integrated the business successfully and moved on to start Levett Business Services, a consultancy business offering commercial leadership, strategic development, mentoring and relationship building. Neil has been in the highways industry for many years making him an extremely credible and well-placed person to join the Highway Care team to bring forward their innovative solutions for a safer future.

Highway Care is a leading supplier and installer of specialist highway and security, vehicle restraint systems and mobile traffic products for the highway safety industry.

Over the past 40 years, Highway Care has remained at the forefront of innovative road safety solutions;
continuing to push boundaries and break new grounds as the first company to introduce new road safety
solutions into the UK such as the first Lorry Mounted Crash Cushion, the first Mobile Light Arrow and Mobile Red X along with the first P4 End Terminal.

Experience and expertise have allowed Highway Care to continue to design and introduce the highest quality systems, providing the best value and sustainable solution to both UK and Global Highway Industry.

Neil Levett, Director, Levett Business Services said, “I was delighted to be invited by Highway Care to join their senior leadership team to conduct a 360-degree delivery analysis and future growth strategy.
By pure coincidence Highway Care was the first company I did business with in the sector when we bought Highways Magazine back in 1995. For them to be one of the first companies that Levett Business Services signs as a client is serendipity.

Their offering is certainly widely known and respected (both domestically and internationally) and we will seek to evolve and develop this reputation as a safety innovator and key service partner for Tier 1 and 2 delivery contractors on some of the UK’s most prestigious projects.

We cannot wait for Traffex this year to unveil some of our lead initiatives for this year, they will certainly be headline grabbers!”

Ben Duncker, Commercial Director, Highway Care, “We are delighted to have this opportunity to work with Neil, someone with many years’ experience in the highways sector as well as intrinsic knowledge of Highway Care throughout the years, on our brand enhancement and core business development projects.

Many in our industry will know Highway Care for the numerous innovative solutions we have introduced in the last two decades and those that don’t will be surprised to learn that our products can be found on almost every mile of Highways England roads. This is something we hope to change in 2019 – starting with Traffex in April!”
