The company

Alcumus is a market-leading provider of technology-led supply chain management and EHS risk management solutions, providing an ecosystem of solutions that allow seamless interactions between enterprises and their contractors and suppliers. Alcumus has a unique breadth of technology-enabled offerings which are critical to worker protection and compliance with regulations and international standards. With its most recent acquisitions in both the UK, North America and APAC, Alcumus has continued to expand its software proposition and international market access, with the business now extremely well placed to take further advantage of consolidation opportunities.

The Inflexion difference

Inflexion’s rich experience with growth through acquisitions and working with management teams to consolidate fragmented markets makes it well placed to support Alcumus’ growth plans. Just nine weeks after the initial buyout, Inflexion supported Alcumus in its acquisition of Santia, one of the UK’s leading providers of integrated health & safety and environment risk management services. Through a number of non-core disposals and supporting the acquisitions of North America-based ContractorCheck and eCompliance, Banyard Solutions in the UK, and Mango in New Zealand, the business is now firmly focused on high growth, high margin propositions to deliver best-in-class technology-led solutions.
