We are delighted to announce that, as of June 30 2020, ContractorCheck has been acquired by Alcumus, a leading provider of risk management solutions.


This acquisition will help ContractorCheck build on our success, providing clients and contractors with an enhanced service offering and more diverse product range.

Alcumus provides a range of technology solutions, advice, expertise and support which helps clients to identify and mitigate risks, navigate compliance, and keep people safe. ContractorCheck expands Alcumus’s North American offering, following the acquisition of eCompliance in 2019, and continues its success by expanding further in North America, helping to support its growth ambitions.

Chris Kelson, CEO and Co-founder of ContractorCheck said: “At ContractorCheck, we are committed to making workplaces safer and helping our clients reduce risk by tackling the administrative legwork of health and safety due diligence and contractor management. Alcumus’s 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, CEO of Alcumus, said: “Alcumus has a strong mission that requires expert solutions: we help make workplaces better and safer and businesses stronger. In North America, where we already have an existing business based in Toronto, the acquisition of ContractorCheck provides greater opportunities for us to provide clients 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.” Franklin also added: “The new acquisition 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 is a real testament to the strength and resilience of Alcumus that we are able to make these acquisitions in such uncertain times.”
