• Servest acquires Aktrion Group

        • FM provider, Servest, has acquired the Aktrion Group, a specialist in the provision of bespoke manufacturing support services. The acquisition now sees the group’s annual turnover increase to in excess of £1 billion globally.

          Servest’s interest in Aktrion stems from the higher value-added and specialist services that the provider offers. Servest’s global reach is also enhanced, building on the joint venture with Atalian and its stake in technology business Getronics, with the global platform that Aktrion brings to Servest through its dedicated automotive business. 

          The transaction will enable Servest to play a leading role in the global manufacturing market, enabling further development of integrated solutions. This will ensure that Servest can continue to drive and deliver optimum performance to its growing client base. 

          Rob Legge, Group CEO at Servest said, “through a combination of organic and acquisitive growth, Aktrion has successfully developed a worldwide business, with a strong presence in printing, automotive, food and transport sectors, supporting its blue chip client base. This acquisition will therefore enable Servest to gain a larger footprint in these sectors, and will allow us to increase our presense in Europe – as we will now operate across 10 European countries. The demand for complex, integrated solutions will ensure our growth will continue to accelerate moving foward. It’s an exciting time for our colleagues and our customers.” 

          Ben Pearson, Aktrion’s chairman added, “we firmly believe this is a positive move for Aktrion, one that will really allow the group to prosper and develop. Our commitment to delivering operational excellence and building long-term relationships mirrors Servest’s ethos, so this is a great cultural fit and we’re really excited to offer existing customers the chance to benefit from Servest’s solutions. With the senior management team remaining in the business, we’re all really looking forward to what the future holds.”
