• The Business
  • In Their Own Words

Alcumus (realised)

Sovereign originally created Alcumus through its platform investment in Sypol, the specialist COSHH and health, safety and environmental risk management services provider, in 2009.  With Sovereign’s backing, Alcumus integrated four bolt-on acquisitions, successfully packaged the breadth of their combined services and

delivered 15 quarters of unbroken organic growth. In addition the business grew its client base from 600 to over 8000 customers and works with 35% of FTSE 100 companies.



“Working with Sovereign was a true partnership. They provided significant investment and strategic support enabling Alcumus to successfully integrate and develop our technology-enable service offering and provide clients with a truly holistic solution.”
