Facilities management service provider Servest has further expanded its catering division with the acquisition of Accuro Catering, part of the Accuro FM Group.
National contract catering company Accuro Catering works with a range of education, hospital and healthcare clients. Servest recognised that the acquisition was a good strategic fit for the expansion of its business as it would assist its continued growth in key sectors.
Rob Legge, group CEO UK and Europe at Servest, said: “The acquisition of Accuro Catering enables us to offer additional catering services and expertise to clients. We welcome a very professional and experienced Accuro Catering operations team to Servest and look to support them in providing even greater standards of innovation in food and service to our new clients and customers.”
Nigel Prothero, chief executive of Accuro Support Services Group, who worked closely with the Servest team throughout the acquisition process, added: “Having taken the decision to divest of our food service division to focus on our core cleaning and facilities management services, we were then keen that we partnered with the right company,” commented Prothero. “Servest stood out as a service provider that values its staff highly and invests in their wellbeing, which can only enhance the service provided to clients.”
Named as one of the UK’s top five fastest growing foodservice companies by the AlixPartners Report 2015, Servest Catering has secured many blue chip contracts and business wins in a short period of time.
