Edinburgh-based Spotless Commercial Cleaning has announced its acquisition of two rivals south of the border.
The contract cleaner has taken over Manchester-headquartered Purity Group, purchasing its assets out of administration. The move builds on the firm’s north-west England footprint as it has had a team in Manchester operating across the region for over a decade.
It has also bought Clearsprings Support Services, a cleaning and support service business based in Salisbury, which serves clients in the South from Greater London to Dorset.
With an established presence in London, where it also has a dedicated team and regional office, this acquisition gives Spotless an enhanced client base across the South of England.
The two acquisitions boost the company’s annual revenues to over £18 million as Spotless intends to extend its presence all over the UK. This drive is being led by CEO Carron Henley (pictured), who joined the company as a credit controller in 2012.
Henley said: “The purchase of Purity Group enables Spotless to build on its long-term presence in Manchester and across the region where we have a growing customer base thanks to the work of our North West team. Meanwhile, the acquisition of Clearsprings has opened a wider market for us across the South of England, building on the efforts of our superb team in London.”
Roger Green, founder and chairman of Spotless, added: “These developments put us in a strong position at the start of 2023. I look forward to working with Carron and our teams as we aim to progress our strategy of growing our presence to cover every UK postcode.”
