News about AM Services Group expanding into Industrial Cleaning with Cleanex.

If you haven’t heard already, we have expanded the range of services by bringing in Cleanex to the AM Services Group of companies. It will sit perfectly with the quality product we already deliver to all of our clients.

The story has been covered in several local and national media titles including the sectors leading magazine “The FMJ”. Here’s what they had to say:

AM Support Services has acquired Stoke-on-Trent-based industrial cleaning company Cleanex Contract Services.

The acquisition will add approximately £1.4 million in turnover to the Morecambe-based facilities management, cleaning and security firm, as well as new specialisms, including heavy industrial, high level and confined space cleaning.

Founded in 2002, AM Support Services employs 480 full and part-time staff on contracts in the North West, North East and Yorkshire. The acquisition of Cleanex now gives it a foothold in the Midlands market and takes turnover to around the £8 million mark.

AM Support Services has clients in the manufacturing, shopping centre, financial and education sector, and as well as its services in facilities management, cleaning and security, it also offers washroom hygiene services under its Pristine Washrooms division.

Adrian Cresswell, managing director and founder of AM Support Services, said:

“This acquisition could not have come at a better time as we have just won two major new contracts in the industrial sector. The specialist skills that Cleanex brings to the business will allow us to do so much more for our clients.

“For example, it can offer niche services like ice-blasting, cleaning in confined spaces and paint booth cleaning. It has some prestigious clients in the aerospace and automotive sectors and so takes us into a new arena.”

AM Support Services was advised on the deal by the Lancaster office of CLB Coopers, who provided accountancy and corporate finance advice, and the mergers & acquisitions team at law firm, Harrison Drury.
