Global facilities management service provider Atalian Servest has made its first acquisitions since forming as a result of the recent merger between Atalian and Servest.
The new group has acquired Unique Catering and Management Services Limited as well as Thermotech Solutions Limited, a provider of active fire protection systems, HVAC and mechanical services.
Thermotech Solutions delivers design, installation and maintenance services to an established blue chip client base operating across the UK.
The acquisition will increase Atalian Servest's footprint in the retail, commercial, industrial, residential and public sectors. It will also enable the organisation to provide a critical self-delivered solution in the rapidly expanding fire protection sector to its growing European client base.
Established in 2000, Unique Catering provides fully managed staff restaurants, deli bars, vending and hospitality services. The purchase brings sites in the commercial, retail, leisure and manufacturing sectors to Atalian Servest.
Following the success of Atalian Servest's B&I brand Angel Hill Food Co. and in-house coffee brand Groundhouse, the expertise and support from the Unique team will enable the FM company to continue developing into new markets.
Rob Legge, chairman UK and USA at Atalian Servest, said: "Atalian Servest's recent acquisitions are a case in point that there is a real commitment to enhance our presence across the sector spectrum, and to grow globally."
