Alcumus, the UK’s leading risk management solutions provider, has announced the sale of its health, safety and environmental consultancy and training services division (HSE) as part of a privately funded management buy-out.
The deal is part of Alcumus’ commercial strategy to focus on the delivery of software-led health, safety and risk management solutions in the UK and internationally.  With more than 40,000 clients using services delivered under its SafeContractor, Sypol, ISOQAR and Info Exchange brands, Alcumus is a leader in the risk management sector.
As part of its ongoing strategy, Alcumus is investing heavily in technology and software to ensure that it continues to provide cutting edge services to the broad range of organisations that it supports.
Alcumus HSE, will now form an independent business that will trade as Ligtas Ltd. All Alcumus employees working for the HSE business will transfer to Ligtas as part of the sale.
Ligtas will continue to provide consultancy and risk management systems and services and training to organisations operating in the property management, financial services, healthcare, retail, consumer and business and wider industry sectors.
The company will also look to grow its products and services in key areas such as construction and manufacturing.
Alyn Franklin, CEO of Alcumus, said that the announcement is positive news for all involved: “The sale of our consultancy and training division is part of our ongoing strategy to make Alcumus the leading supplier of software-led risk management solutions.
Having worked with many colleagues in this part of the business for a long time, this decision will give the Ligtas management team the scope to grow the business. It was important for Alcumus to ensure that the HSE business was handed over to a highly experienced management team and employees that understand the business inside out. This is the next step on Alcumus’ journey and we have a number of exciting developments planned for 2019 and beyond directly supporting our mission – to make our clients safer, healthier and stronger.”
