Capita has acquired project management and engineering outfit Projen for an undisclosed sum.
The Cheshire-based firm employs over 100 staff, and provides a range of design, engineering and management services in the pharmaceutical, oil and gas, manufacturing and bio energy markets.
The company will join Capita’s design and management division, and sit within its 4,000 strong property and infrastructure business.
Projen works for clients such as GlaxoSmithKline, Sanofi and Smith & Nephew. It recently expanded into the bioenergy field to deliver biofuels, biomass, and biogas projects, particularly focussed on the development, design and build of anaerobic digestion plants in the energy from waste market.
Simon Birchall, executive director of design and management at Capita, said: “Projen is an excellent cultural fit for our business and reflects our commitment to expansion through the acquisition of strong and innovative businesses that allow us to enter new markets and provide new technological solutions to our clients.”
Martin Seabrook, managing director of Projen, said: “Working as part of a major consultancy will allow us to invest in the future growth of our business, further develop our staff, and expand our capabilities into new markets – as well as giving our clients access to the skills and transformational expertise of a market-leading business.”
