Facilicom Group’s strategic principle is that all its companies should strive for the top position in facility services. In the Netherlands, the Facilicom Group is one of the top players by activity and is active in all domains of the facilities sector. In Belgium this applies to cleaning activities and Facilicom sees space to be among the top in other activities as well.
Limited service in UK
In the UK and Ireland, Facilicom is only active in cleaning and security services. With a turnover of around 50 million and a workforce of 2,000 employees, activities in the UK and Ireland are no longer in line with the Group’s strategy. In addition, the distance to the top of the service facility in the UK is enormous, the board said in a statement.
Focus on the Netherlands and Belgium
For this reason, the Facilicom Group has decided to divest its activities in the UK and Ireland and to focus entirely on its activities in the Netherlands and Belgium. At Kingdom Services Group, Facilicom has found the party it deserves for its employees and clients.
Preserving family business values
Kingdom is also a family business with values that match Facilicom. Where the dominant Kingdom was active in security, Facilicom was active in clean-ups in the UK and Ireland. The two organizations complement each other well with regards to portfolios, the statement also states.
The transfer has now taken place. All employees, including management, will be transferred to Kingdom Services Group.
