Professional services company Gemserv has bought two specialist consultancies in the digital transformation and cybersecurity sectors.
The firm, which is involved in various projects including those in the energy sector such as the smart meter rollout, says the buyout of ASE Consulting and Aprose Risk will strengthen and broaden its services to new markets.
The businesses have clients across the public and private sectors, including energy, government and healthcare and covers areas such as electric vehicles (EVs) and Internet of Things (IoT).
Alex Goody, Chief Executive of Gemserv said: “The pace of change in the energy sector is accelerating and technology and data advances means it is increasingly connecting with other sectors such as transport and telecoms.
“These acquisitions will help Gemserv keep ahead of developments by enhancing our digital expertise.”
The deal will create a combined group with 180 staff and annual revenues of more than £20 million.
