In its first ever external growth operation, the IKOS Group, which specialises in engineering consultancy in the railway and energy sectors, has acquired AEGIS.
IKOS Group, which is already present in 11 countries, adds the three AEGIS entities located in Derby and Madrid to its 19 offices already established around the world.
This acquisition is part of the IKOS’s desire to accelerate its growth, develop its international expansion and improve its offerings, while contributing to the major challenges of sustainable development in the world of transport. Aligning with the growth ambitions of AEGIS, and with a combined team of 100 engineers in the UK, IKOS is now a market leader in the UK.
Founded in 2005, IKOS has grown organically to its present position of over 1,000 employees worldwide. A pioneering company, IKOS has become a specialised, innovative and international group. Its ambition remains the same today as when it was founded: to be a performance and innovation accelerator for its clients and a career accelerator for its consultants, while contributing to the major challenges of sustainable development in the world of transport.
“We are very pleased to welcome the AEGIS teams into the group, with whom we share the same expertise in the railway sector and the same values based on passion, team spirit, respect and excellence. AEGIS is one of the few companies specialised in railways, like IKOS, with a desire to develop internationally and to invest in innovation” explains Serge Chelly, CEO of IKOS.
Mark McCool, CEO of AEGIS adds: “I am proud of the award-winning AEGIS team, who have established us as a leading provider of consultancy and certification services to the UK rail market. We share with the IKOS Group a growth mindset and values that put people first. This, combined with our shared passion for excellence and teamwork in everything we do, has made IKOS the ideal partner for the next chapter in the AEGIS story. We are proud to be part of the IKOS Group and look forward to joining forces to provide new opportunities for our teams and an even better service offering for our clients”.
