Committed to maintaining the highest possible standards in all aspects of surveying, Sumo are, in particular, the undisputed leaders in archaeological and utility surveying in the UK.

Colin Carnachan, Managing Director, Sumo Services Limited, said;
“IGF has none of the banking bureaucracy that I have experienced elsewhere. The team genuinely wants to help us in achieving our objectives. Decisions are swift and they are always available. That is why I have always been happy to recommend them to colleagues over the years.”

Kris Circus, Client Manager, IGF Group, said;
“Supporting growing, acquisitive and energetic businesses, such as Sumo, is what IGF is all about. We spend the time to look after their individual needs. Furthermore, with an expanding product range, including asset based lending, we can achieve even more together in the years to come.”
