MITIEMitie Group plc has acquired Procius Limited, a UK pre-employment screening company, from the management team for around £2.3 million.

Procius is a specialist in pre-employment screening and vetting, and has particular expertise in the aviation and transportation sectors. The acquisition will provide Mitie’s Total Security Management business with additional niche capability. The combined business has over 3,000 customers across all sectors. The acquisition will add an operational hub in Basingstoke to Mitie’s PeopleCert and UKCRBs businesses which are located at MiTec (Mitie’s technology hub in Northern Ireland).

Ruby McGregor-Smith CBE, Mitie’s Chief Executive, said: “I am delighted to welcome the Procius employees to our rapidly growing screening and vetting business. This acquisition will significantly enhance the services that we offer to our customers, particularly in the aviation and transport sectors.”
