Following the recent acquisition of OCS Group by Clayton Dubilier & Rice, Atalian confirms the sale of its operations in the United Kingdom, Ireland and Asia to the private investment firm.
In a move that will create one of the world’s largest international facilities service providers, Atalian Global Services has confirmed the sale of its UK, Ireland and Asia operations, along with its specialist automotive division Aktrion, to Clayton Dubilier & Rice (CD&R), the private investment firm that recently acquired OCS Group.
Over the next 12 months the businesses will be combined under the same brand – primarily OCS – opening a new chapter for two firms that have over 150 years of heritage between them. The new organisation will have a combined turnover in excess of £2Bn, employing more than 130,000 colleagues worldwide and operating in 26 countries.
Both organisations have a strong history of shaping the facilities services industry and a well-established track record of delivering high quality services across a range of sectors and industries to customers at a local, national and international level.
Atalian’s Group CEO Rob Legge will become Group CEO of the merged businesses. Legge commented: “This merger creates a powerful services provider in the marketplace that will offer customers greater choice and broader expertise. We are committed to continuing to build a sustainable business that adds value to our customers, partners, colleagues and society, with a strong emphasis on colleague development, harnessing existing and emerging technologies to complement and enhance our solutions, and a continued focus to deliver on our ESG promises.”
“Our two operations are complementary with like-minded values and priorities, and this new chapter will allow us to combine our vast experience and knowledge to the benefit of the whole market”
“We will continue to seize development opportunities expanding our sectors and services and delivering world class solutions.”
