Carillion has completed the acquisition of Alfred McAlpine to become one of the UK’s largest support services and integrated solutions companies, with a combined annual revenue of around £5.3bn and 50,000 employees.

The combination of Carillion and McAlpine will create one of the UK’s foremost support services business with annual revenues of some £2.6 billion, serving both public and private sector customers, with an enhanced capability to provide integrated solutions, including private finance, design, construction, maintenance and support services.

Commenting on the acquisition, Carillion Facilities Management MD, John Platt, said: "The acquisition of Alfred McAlpine is a major milestone in Carillion's development. The combined Group will be one of the UK's foremost support services businesses, with significantly enhanced capabilities to provide integrated solutions for services, buildings and infrastructure, from private finance to life-time asset management.

“Not only does the acquisition strengthen Carillion’s integrated service offering but provides a number of cross-selling opportunities in environmental and design consultancy, IT services, traffic management, piling and mechanical & electrical maintenance. “

Carillion has four sector-focused business groups - Business Services, Infrastructure Services, Building and International - into which it will integrate the businesses acquired with Alfred Mcalpine - Business Services, Infrastructure Services and Project Services.
