One Equity Partners, a middle-market private equity firm, has purchased Amey PLC, an engineering consultancy and infrastructure services provider, from Ferrovial.

Amey is a contractor within the U.K.’s government and public sector, with a history in engineering design, construction, maintenance and project management of national infrastructure assets. The company primarily serves the transport infrastructure and government buildings markets. Buckthorn Partners LLP, a U.K.-based investment firm, will partner with OEP in this transaction.

“Amey is a well-regarded, long-standing player in the critical infrastructure design and management space in the U.K., and we are very excited about the enhanced opportunities for growth Amey will have as an independent company,” comments Ante Kusurin, prinicpal, One Equity Partners. “We believe that the UK’s decarbonization efforts and Net Zero strategy will also accelerate growth by creating new opportunities for sustainable infrastructure.”
