Facilities management service provider, Servest, has acquired the building services contractor, Arthur McKay, as part of its growth and diversification strategy.
Servest identified the contractor, which has offices throughout the UK as being a good strategic fit for their existing building services division. Arthur McKay delivers services ranging from mechanical and electrical to networks and FM services. The acquisition will help Servest expand and develop its technical expertise, in addition to extending the FM Company’s geographical reach.
Arthur McKay was founded in 1958 and is now one of the UK’s leading providers of building support services, with a highly credible track record on the design and safe delivery of complex, multi-million pound projects. The company’s customer base is varied across multiple, private and public sectors. The company is currently on the top 50 FM companies list, and has a turnover of £125 million.
Rob Legge, Group Chief Executive Officer UK and Europe at Servest, said: “The acquisition is part of our growth strategy to become one of the top five FM service providers in the UK. I’m delighted to be able to offer new and existing customers a wider range of services through the new combined entity.”
Legge added: “I look forward to working with Arthur McKay, senior management team on integrating the business into Servest.”
The senior management team will remain in place to facilitate a smooth transition.
Callum Herd, Managing Director of Arthur McKay said: “I hand the business over to Servest with the greatest of confidence. I know that being part of such an established and industry renowned organisation our clients will be in safe hands. We look forward to seeing Servest build on Arthur McKay’s success.”
