Capita acquires AD plant builder

Business process management and outsourcing giant Capita has acquired Projen, an engineering company specialising in designing and building anaerobic digestion plants, for an undisclosed sum.

Projen will be housed within Capita’s project and infrastructure business and sit within the design and management division.

Capita said that the deal would expand existing services into new key markets and create opportunities for cross-selling a wider range of expertise to clients of both organisations, as well as the up-selling of wider transformational partnerships to new clients in key growth markets such as bioenergy.

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. Projen is a well-established, innovative business in key target markets for us and I welcome its staff to our business.”

Projen managing director Martin Seabrook added: “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.”

Projen was formed in 1978 and employs more than 100 staff at Preston Brook in Cheshire.
