Alcumus today announced the acquisition of Safety Management & Monitoring Services Limited (SM&MS), a health & safety and environmental services provider, specialising in the property management sector.

The acquisition of SM&MS will further accelerate Alcumus’ penetration of legislatively-driven compliance markets, particularly around property & workplace risk, complemented by Alcumus’ current software, consultancy and monitoring services in this space.

Established in 1994 and based in Huddersfield, SM&MS supports a long-established national client base. Over the last 20 years, the 80-strong team at SM&MS have supported more than 1,600 companies across 60,000 projects and are considered a leader and innovator in the property sector and have delivered over 10,000 risk assessments last year alone.

The SM&MS offering encompasses various H&S risk management and monitoring aspects, (including asbestos, legionella and fire monitoring and inspection) as well as energy performance and general H&S consultancy and support.  These consultancy services are underpinned by SaaS software that enables clients to proactively manage health & safety issues and contractor risk.

Beatriz Shorrock SM&MS Operations Director and Richard Edwards SM&MS Business Development Director will join the Alcumus leadership team ensuring continuity and quality of service delivery and client management.

Commenting on the acquisition, Martin Smith, Chief Executive Officer of Alcumus said: “We have known SM&MS for a number of years and are delighted to have acquired a business with such a strong reputation for quality and delivery of critical risk management service to the commercial multi-site property sector.

Smith continued: “The addition of SM&MS represents a significant development in Alcumus’ GRC and Accredited Inspection strategy and will allow us to offer a truly holistic solution to address clients’ property-related business risks and legal obligations, whilst adding additional safety monitoring and H&S risk management services to those Alcumus already offer, including the Sypol CMS COSHH Management Service.  We look forward to working with the SM&MS team to support the business continued growth and to extend our respective areas of expertise across our combined customer base.”

SM&MS founders, Philip and Sue Morris, commented: “Having grown the business over the last 20 years, we are delighted that SM&MS, and its loyal workforce and client base, will now benefit from the shared expertise and resources of Alcumus.  We look forward with confidence to seeing SM&MS and Alcumus continue to innovate and grow within the monitoring and H&S risk management compliance market.”
