Facilities management service provider Servest has further expanded its catering division with January’s acquisition of Accuro Catering, part of the Accuro FM Group.
Servest has identified the national contract catering company as being a good strategic fit for the expansion of the business. Accuro Catering works with an array of education, hospitals and healthcare clients and this recent acquisition will give Servest Group an increased presence in these key sectors.
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 and this most recent acquisition will assist its continued growth in key sectors.
Rob Legge, Group Chief Executive Officer 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, worked closely with the Servest team throughout the acquisition process. “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.”
