Multidisciplinary FM provider Bidvest Noonan has announced that it has acquired an investment in the Axis Group.
The group comprises several divisions: Axis Security, Axis Cleaning, and Acuity, a specialist in front-of-house management. It has 4,000 employees and a wide-ranging portfolio of clients, and operates nationwide facilities services.
A statement from Bidvest Noonan said the businesses have much in common, as both focus on developing long-term relationships with clients, and protecting the safety and wellbeing of their employees.
“The investment “substantially strengthens our business, adding to our scale, expertise and infrastructure. It will allow us to provide greater value and support to all current and future clients”.
“Our dedicated transition team is executing a strategy that will ensure Axis transitions seamlessly into our business. There will be no disruption to the services we deliver, with current service delivery teams remaining in place.”
Declan Doyle, CEO of Bidvest Noonan, said: “Axis is a great business supported by a team of excellent people. This investment represents the continued realisation of our strategy to grow our UK business and strengthen our position as a leading provider of security and facilities management services, that offers a strong and credible alternative to the current large companies operating in the market.”
Jonathan Levine, Axis Group CEO, said: “Bidvest Noonan is a great partner for our business, committed to the long-term growth and development of the company and our 4,000 people. With a reputation for high standards, excellent customer service and long-lasting, trust-based relationships with clients, their values and approach are highly complementary to our business and we look forward to working with them to continue delivering the high standards of service to our clients.”
