With its experience in decarbonisation, Integrum will aid OCU in infrastructure opportunities to help the UK reach its net-zero goals. 

Past acquisitions

  • Modus, utility specialist. 
  • InICT, fibre optic specialist.

  • Andrews Associates, power systems design and engineering service.
  • FKS, a telecommunications installation company. 

On the most recent acquisition, Michael Hughes, CEO of OCU Group, said: “Acquiring Integrum is a great move for OCU Group, especially as the UK increases its infrastructure spend in the renewable space. 

“As we build our portfolio within this space, we’re supporting the UK’s goal of hitting net zero by 2050 and, in turn, providing a greener solution for our clients.”
