Alan Robson, founder of Innov8 Safety Solutions in Wirral, has sold his business to Gateshead-based Lucion Environmental for an undisclosed sum.
Robson, who established his consultancy in 2007, will remain with the firm. Innov8 will operate as a subsidiary of Lucion. Robson said: "We would like to make clear from the outset that there will be absolutely no interruption or change to our service.
"Innov8 will remain as a separate legal entity, which I will continue to lead as the managing director, supported by the existing Innov8 team, across our existing offices. The key message we want to deliver is that this development will further enhance our client offering.
"We have long admired the quality of service that Lucion offers to its clients. Together we will be an even more effective and responsive organisation. Clients will benefit from cutting-edge technology and methodologies on which Lucion has built its success over the last decade."
Innov8 provides construction design management services, site safety advice and associated training across the UK.
Lucion was founded in 2002 by Dr Patrick Morton and Charles Pickles and has offices across the UK and in Singapore.
Pickles said: "Innov8 has an enviable reputation for independent pragmatic professionalism, which we shall maintain. It has been a genuine pleasure to work with Alan and his team over the last few months and we are all now looking forward to capitalising upon our enhanced service offering."
