Kingdom Services Group buys Facilicom Cleaning & Trigion Security
Kingdom Services Group has completed the purchase of Facilicom Cleaning Services and Trigion Security Services in a move that will bolster the firm's cleaning and security credentials and significantly increase its market share.
Kingdom, one of the largest national and privately-run companies in the UK and India and one that specialises in cleaning, environmental protection, security solutions and recruitment, has bought the two businesses from the Netherlands-based Facilicom Group.
As part of the deal, the Kingdom Cleaning division will benefit from the existing Facilicom way of working, creating an even stronger industry proposition. The manned guarding division of Trigion will merge into the continued expansion of Kingdom Security. The move will also see the launch of Kingdom Technology as a separate company, which will include fire and electronic security services.
All Facilicom and Trigion employees, including management, will transfer to Kingdom Services Group.
"We are delighted to have completed the purchase of Facilicom and Trigion, our largest acquisition in our 28-year history," says Terry Barton (pictured), CEO of Kingdom Services Group. "From initial conversations it was clear that we shared the same family-owned culture, values, and passions. Facilicom is a very successful business and has a fantastic reputation for service delivery and colleague investment so the acquisition complements and extends what Kingdom already do so well.
"This is the beginning of another new and exciting chapter, which will undoubtedly accelerate our growth vision and make Kingdom stronger than ever."
Jan Hein Hemke, managing director of Facilicom UK & Ireland, adds: "We are incredibly proud to be joining forces with Kingdom Services Group. With our joint vision for cleaning and security excellence, it is a great strategic fit and will enable us to bring an even stronger range of services to the market.
"The move also gives our colleagues an even brighter future as part of one of the largest support services businesses in the market. With ambitious plans for the future, we very much look forward to growing the business together."
