The Naimuri board are delighted to announce that yesterday 14th July 2020, QinetiQ acquired the entire share capital of Naimuri.
QinetiQ is a business with over 6,000 staff across 50 sites worldwide. QinetiQ harnesses the deep technical expertise, know-how and independent thinking of its scientists, engineers and project delivery experts to help its customers solve difficult problems.
QinetiQ are a great fit for Naimuri; they have an excellent reputation across our sector and real ambition to be the best and make a difference. The Board are really excited by the opportunities that this will create, both for the growth and ambition of the company and for the development of all our people.
This alliance with QinetiQ is the natural next step in Naimuri’s journey.
Our vision to revolutionise national security, intelligence and law enforcement through the use of technology will endure, as will our mission to make the UK a safer and better place. QinetiQ believes in this vision and intends to build the UK’s leading sovereign ‘Information Advantage’ company leveraging our position with the UK Intelligence Community (UKIC) and Home Office and QinetiQ’s position in Defence.
We will be integrated thoughtfully into QinetiQ. Our people are what make Naimuri great and their continuing engagement, development and wellbeing are essential to achieving our joint ambition. The scale and reach of QinetiQ will provide increased opportunities for people to thrive and be the best they can be. Working together we will accelerate our growth helping to achieve our shared vision, deliver UK sovereign capability and expand internationally. This aligns with QinetiQ’s growth strategy.
To achieve these outcomes we, with the QinetiQ board commit to maintaining Naimuri’s culture, values and ethos. In particular:
Naimuri will initially retain its name, brand and identity and will help shape QinetiQ’s future digital branding and market presence
Naimuri will lead the creation of the national centre of excellence for data intelligence in the North West and enable the creation of other delivery centres in the UK and internationally
QinetiQ recognise what is special about Naimuri and not only do they want to preserve it, they want to replicate it across parts of the broader organisation
Naimuri will retain the authority to make the decisions that support its agility, efficiency and business winning capability including responsibility for its people and recruitment processes
Naimuri’s innovative, agile and flexible business approach will not change and will be enhanced by QinetiQ’s complementary capabilities into the UKIC and Defence markets
QinetiQ will enable and support the long-term sustainable growth of Naimuri through investment and will provide access to skills, technology and new markets.
Together we are committed to these principles, which will accelerate our growing revolution in Security and Defence markets and create a powerful market-leading combination.
