Envido announce acquisition of Procuro

Envido, one of the UK’s leading providers of energy and carbon management services, today announced that it has acquired Procuro.

Online PR News – 04-December-2009 – – The combined companies will operate under the Envido name and brand, with headquarters located in London, and two regional offices in Manchester and Ipswich. Under the agreement, Procuro will effectively form the ‘Technology’ division of Envido, focused on implementation and project management of the company’s technology-based services.

The acquisition of Procuro by Envido creates one of the broadest customer bases of any energy and carbon management service provider in the UK, with clients across an extensive range of private companies, government entities and educational institutions.

Following the acquisition, Envido’s client base has expanded from 100 to a total of 180 public and private sector organizations, adding a larger number of manufacturing companies to its reach, including Rolls Royce, Mars, Sandvik and Saint Gobain.

Customer Benefits

The acquisition of Procuro means Envido is able to offer even greater in-house expertise in consultancy, programme management and building energy management solutions that deliver real business benefits to customers.

“This move makes tremendous sense for our clients and employees. It marks a real opportunity for two already successful companies to unify with a singular focus on being the premier partner for organizations who want to manage their low-carbon journey cost-effectively, and with one partner” said Russell Lerman, co-Managing Director of Envido.

“The needs of our clients are rapidly evolving. This merger provides us with the opportunity to improve the access, quality and efficiency of the services they require to meet their energy and carbon reduction targets, now and in the future.”

Complementary Strengths and Synergies

The acquisition of Procuro by Envido unites two innovators servicing private and public sector organizations, both with complementary in-depth experience in energy and carbon management.

Key strengths of the combination include:
• A world-class, expert energy and carbon management organisation benefiting from the best-practices, resources and infrastructure investments of both companies
• A stronger presence in the energy and carbon management sector
• Larger revenue streams, enabling greater investment for innovation and technology-independence
