Incentive FM Group has acquired Specialist Window Cleaning Ltd in a move designed to enable the business to self-deliver additional services to its expanding portfolio of customers.
The new services taken on-board include low level, rope access, cradle and high level window cleaning using a combination of traditional and water-fed pole methods.
This acquisition demonstrates our strategy of self-delivering a full range of services to our customers to deliver high standards and improved efficiencies.
Martin Reed, Managing Director of Incentive FM Group
Specialist Window Cleaning was formed in 2010 by Gareth Thomas, who will join the Incentive Group along with his operations management team and a team of both mobile and site-based window cleaners. The company, which has tripled its turnover in the past three years, will continue to operate under the SWC brand delivering services for both Incentive FM and Incentive QAS in addition to providing services for its expanding standalone client base.
Commenting on the acquisition, Martin Reed, Managing Director at Incentive FM Group (left with Chris Thomas, Jamie Wright, Martin Athey, Jeremy Waud and Gareth Thomas), said: “We have been working closely with SWC for the past 12 months with mutual clients and have been extremely impressed by Gareth and his team. This acquisition demonstrates our strategy of self-delivering a full range of services to our customers to deliver high standards and improved efficiencies. It will add strength and competitive edge to Incentive QAS and Incentive FM, whilst providing SWC with additional back office, sales and management support.”
Thomas added: “I set up SWC five years ago as I felt that I could offer clients something special in terms of innovation, quality and customer service. Since then I have been approached a number of times to sell the business but it wasn’t until I started working closely with Incentive FM Group that I knew I had found a business that shared both my vision and values. I am very excited about the opportunities that being part of this highly respected and successful business will bring.”
