Kingdom Services Group has finalised the acquisition of Facilicom Cleaning Services and Trigion Security Services in a move to strengthen the FM provider’s cleaning and security credentials and increase market share.
Kingdom, a privately owned company specialising in security solutions, cleaning, environmental protection and recruitment, has bought the two businesses from the Netherlands-based Facilicom Group.
As part of the deal, the Kingdom Cleaning arm will benefit from the Facilicom method of working, to build a stronger industry proposition. Trigion‘s manned guarding division will merge with that of Kingdom Security. The move will also see the launch of Kingdom Technology Ltd as a separate company to include fire and electronic security services.
All Facilicom and Trigion employees, with management, will TUPE transfer to Kingdom Services Group.
Terry Barton, CEO of Kingdom Services Group Ltd, said: “ From initial conversations, it was clear that we shared the same family-owned culture, values, and passions. Facilicom is a very successful business and has a fantastic reputation for service delivery and colleague investment so the acquisition complements and extends what Kingdom already does so well. This is the beginning of another new and exciting chapter, which will undoubtedly accelerate our growth vision and make Kingdom stronger than ever.”
Jan Hein Hemke, managing director of Facilicom UK & Ireland, added: “With our joint vision for cleaning and security excellence, it is a great strategic fit and will enable us to bring an even stronger range of services to the market. The move also gives our colleagues an even brighter future as part of one of the largest support services businesses in the market. With ambitious plans for the future, we very much look forward to growing the business together.”
