Marston Holdings, a UK-based provider of integrated, technology-enabled transport solutions, has announced its acquisition of Vortex IoT, a supplier of environmental sensors, networks and data solutions that support improved air quality and decarbonisation initiatives.

Marston said it aids government, utilities and private sector clients through the delivery of integrated technology-enabled solutions from design through to implementation, management and recovery. Marston’s clients include local authorities seeking to build environmental schemes that reduce congestion and pollution.

With the acquisition of Vortex, Marston aims to strengthen its offering by delivering complementary air quality and acoustic monitoring solutions that maximise awareness, identify pollution hotspots and improve public health. Air quality monitors, associated data and analytics can be used to assess the success of policy in meeting clean air targets.

Steve Callaghan, chair of Marston Holdings, said: “Marston Holdings has been on a journey of enhancing technological capability and I’m delighted that Vortex IoT’s innovative solutions now form part of our end-to-end offering delivering cleaner, greener streets.”

The acquisition of Vortex follows the 2019 acquisitions of Videalert, a supplier of intelligent traffic management solutions; ParkTrade, a Swedish-based European tolling payments and collections business; and LogicValley, an Indian-based AI focused developer.

“We have a long track record of successfully working in partnership with the public sector, and this acquisition reflects client feedback seeking innovative, technology-enabled solutions,” added Mark Hoskin, chief commercial officer at Marston Holdings.

“COP26 demonstrated public support for driving the transition to a zero-carbon economy, and we are pleased to further enhance our ability to support our clients and their residents through cleaner, healthier and more people-friendly communities.”
