History

FLI has grown both organically and by targeted acquisition in growth sectors since its incorporation in February 1989. It’s origins lie in the geosynthetics business providing engineered landfill lining solutions in Ireland, UK, throughout Europe and indeed the rest of the world. With this business activity FLI grew and was able to make the investments that have transformed the company to where it is today. In the last 10 years we have acquired a complementary lining business in France, a land remediation company in the UK and two water/wastewater technology and services companies in the UK. In addition we have entered the anaerobic digestion market organically and 2012 was a key breakthrough year for us in this domain.

Throughout this period, Michael Flynn has been at the helm and has overseen the continuing professionalization of a company with an entrepreneurial and customer focused spirit.

We continue to grow organically in our key sectors not only in the UK and Ireland but also in France and other selected locations around the world.
