Alcumus Expansion in North America & the UK Signals Continued Strength for Risk Management Expert


Alcumus, a global leading provider of risk management solutions, builds on its recent success by expanding in North America with the acquisition of ContractorCheck, a specialist company providing health and safety pre-qualification and contractor management accreditation and the acquisition of Banyard Solutions in the UK, a developer of e-permits. These acquisitions support its growth ambitions, helping to make workplaces better and safer.

Alcumus provides a range of technology solutions, advice, expertise, and support to help clients identify and mitigate risks, navigate compliance to strengthen workplaces. ContractorCheck will complement Alcumus’ well-established portfolio of software-led risk management solutions both in North America and globally, alongside eCompliance.

Based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, ContractorCheck specializes in providing health and safety pre-qualification and contractor management accreditation. Working with companies across Canada, assessing and accrediting contractors to legislative and customer requirements, its services help customers to maintain compliance and reduce potential risks working with contractors. The acquisition expands Alcumus’ North American offering, following the acquisition of eCompliance in 2019.

“Alcumus has a strong mission requiring expert solutions: we help make workplaces better and safer, and businesses stronger,” says Alyn Franklin, CEO, Alcumus. “In North America, where we already have an existing business, eCompliance, the acquisition of ContractorCheck provides greater opportunities for us to provide customers with risk management and compliance solutions where our expertise is highly relevant. North America is the largest, highest growth market in the world and Alcumus is well-placed to serve local as well as global companies.”

“We’re thrilled ContractorCheck is joining the Alcumus family, and we recognize the consistent feedback from our customers that better contractor management is a top priority,” says Adrian Bartha, President, Alcumus North America. “Now more than ever, alignment between contractors and their clients is critical in creating better and safer workplaces. Contractors want a better way to demonstrate their commitment to safety and sustainability to the clients they work with and ContractorCheck brings this proven specialty to that commitment. The acquisition of ContractorCheck is another step ensuring the Alcumus platform is positioned for future growth and opportunities in the North American market.”

“At ContractorCheck, we are committed to making workplaces safer and helping our clients reduce risk, by managing the administrative work required of health and safety due diligence and contractor management,” says Chris Kelson, CEO and Co-Founder, ContractorCheck. “Alcumus’ deep subject-matter, expertise and holistic vision to create better workplaces and stronger, more resilient businesses, was inspiring and we are excited to become part of a global leader.”

Alyn Franklin, Alcumus CEO adds: “The two new acquisitions we’ve made will help to support our growth ambitions, drive improved business performance and expand our range of risk management solutions to enable us to support our clients. It’s a real testament to the strength and resilience of Alcumus that we are able to make these acquisitions in such uncertain times.”
