NCC Group has agreed to buy Accumuli in order to boost its capabilities in round-the-clock operational support and incident management, and develop its consulting business.
With the price set at £55 million, NCC Group’s chief executive Rob Cotton said that the addition of Accumuli will enable it to provide a wider and more comprehensive range of security solutions and services.
“In this dynamic and rapidly growing international market, customers are now looking for the type of 24/7 operational security support and incident management offered by Accumuli in addition to our consulting capabilities,” he said.
“We have already been bidding jointly together on a number of projects, and with Accumuli as part of the group, we will be able to bid for complex projects in a sole capacity. The acquisition provides an opportunity to develop our core consulting business across a wider customer base.”
Nick Kingsbury, non-executive chairman of Accumuli, said the deal would be highly beneficial to its customer base.
