Air monitoring specialist snapped up as part of strategic growth plan

Palatine-backed environmental consultancy Cura Terrae has acquired air quality monitoring business Enviro Technology Services Ltd.

It is its second acquisition in the last two weeks and the third since becoming part of the Palatine portfolio in 2022.

Enviro Technology will join Ecus Environmental Monitoring Solutions and Envirocare, as part of the Sheffield-based Cura Terrae group.

As a global player in air monitoring systems, its services complement the range of environmental services offered by the growing group.

Enviro Technology is based in Stroud, Gloucestershire. It will work alongside the existing teams at Cura Terrae, offering real-time instrumentation, ‘turn-key’ environmental monitoring systems, support for the measurement of air pollution and greenhouse gases to a range of clients in the UK and beyond.

For almost 40 years, Enviro Technology has worked with government, local authorities, agencies, research and industrial clients to implement and support the instrumentation required to monitor compliance with legislative air pollution targets, as well as advancing localised strategies and solutions.

Peter Skipworth, CEO at Cura Terrae, said: “It has never been more important to understand and manage the air pollution that is around us every day.

“This acquisition is a significant and exciting development for Cura Terrae, and we look forward to welcoming Enviro Technology’s staff and clients on board and continuing our mission.

“They will complement the services already offered by the group, and their expertise will strengthen our existing pool of knowledge, experience and resources, all of which allow us to offer excellent environmental services.”

Duncan Mounsor, managing director of Enviro Technology, said: “We’re thrilled to have found a place where our business and staff can thrive.

“Joining the Cura Terrae family means we can continue to provide our clients with cutting-edge monitoring technology and high-quality services within a multi-disciplinary environmental group that aligns with our mission to help our clients work towards a more sustainable future.”

James Gregson, Impact Fund Partner at Palatine, added: “This marks the third acquisition for Cura Terrae since receiving investment from our pioneering Impact Fund in March 2022.

“Entering the air monitoring market is an important strategic step for Cura Terrae’s growth and an opportunity to continue building a leading and increasingly diverse, environmental group that offers complementary client services that make a positive difference.”
