Livingston James partners with ALS to appoint Integration Director

*Please note this role’s base location is flexible across the UK*


ALS is building the UK’s leading dental manufacturing business. It was created in 2019 by Ansor LLP partners Peter Strafford and Peter Marson. They identified that the dental laboratory industry was on the cusp of transformation with the potential to improve products and solutions for dentists and patients whilst delivering significant growth and value by building a large dental laboratory group.

ALS’s goal is to build the UK’s leading, most innovative and technologically advanced dental manufacturing group, positively disrupting the industry and advancing its capability by integrating progressive businesses, advanced technologies and skilled people. It is on the acquisition trail, having grown from start-up at the end of 2019, to currently 15 laboratories, through a mixture of acquisition and organic growth in the crown and bridge and orthodontic segments. ALS has a strong pipeline of future acquisitions and new products that will continue to drive the rapid expansion and development of the group. It is very much an exciting time to be joining the business.


As ALS continues on its growth path, acquiring more labs across the UK, the appointment of an Integration Director is now required. This role will coordinate all aspects of business and acquisition integration, including but not limited to legal, IT, branding, finance, HR and health and safety. This is a critical role for ALS as the group will continue to grow, acquiring new dental laboratories across the UK, Europe and with future international plans.


The position requires an experienced Integration Director who has experience of having executed a similar role previously. The role requires a strong leader, with exceptional project management skills and gravitas. It is important that candidates can manage stakeholders at all levels, both internally and externally.

Proven experience in building a high-growth business through the integration of multiple acquisitions, transforming business operations through technology advancements and maintaining company culture is essential.
