Atalian Servest's specialist catering division secured more than £21million of new business in the nine-month period running up to the end of its financial year in June.
The caterer launched its new business and industry catering brand 'Angel Hill Food Co.' and signature coffee brand 'Groundhouse' at the end of 2016.
In Q4 of 2016, it purchased Catering Academy, an independent national catering operator, and began working with a significant number of customers in the education and healthcare sectors. The acquisition allowed the division to expand and develop a presence in both sectors and continue to develop partnerships in a variety of target markets.
New contracts have been signed across a range of sectors including energy, government, defence, healthcare and retail. In May, Servest formally merged with global facilities management company Atalian to form the one of the world's largest FM outsourcing companies.
The UK street lighting market has seen "steady growth in recent years, driven by substantial LED replacement programmes run by local authorities over the past five years or so", according to a report by AMA Research.
