EcoOnline, a European environment, health and safety software-as-a-service company and a portfolio company of Apax Partners, has acquired the software division of U.K.-headquartered Alcumus, a global risk management services provider.

Alcumus’s software division offers services that help organizations manage and audit EHS risk across a range of sectors including retail, construction and manufacturing. The deal creates a global EHSQ technology company with over 850 team members, supporting 10,000 customers with its software services.

“By joining forces with Alcumus Software, we’re creating a global software leader with a mission, to keep people safe and protect the environment,” comments Andreas Nordsjö, EcoOnline’s senior vice president of operations. “This is particularly exciting as Alcumus and EcoOnline share the same vision and desire to use technology for good, along with having an employee-centered culture. The acquisition provides a strengthened presence in the U.K. and Ireland, and a far bigger North American footprint.”
