Emprise Services cleans up *Clarity

08 April 2010

Emprise Services has purchased *Clarity, a niche cleaning company delivering diamond floor polishing and construction cleans in addition to daily cleans in the education sector.

Following its acquisition of Perfectus in February, Emprise Services has made  a further strategic acquisition to consolidate a long term prior relationship with this specialist cleaning company. *Clarity is based in Norfolk and generates half of its revenue in cleaning within the local education sector. The balance of revenue is delivered through specialist cleaning to the retail and construction sectors.
The education sector component of *Clarity’s business will be integrated into Emprise’s Corporate and Commercial division to complement its portfolio of existing contracts in Norfolk. The diamond floor polishing and construction cleaning work will be delivered through a new sub-division of Emprise’s Retail and Key Accounts Division. This ‘Specialist Services’ sub-division will provide company-wide specialist support including builders cleans, diamond floor polishing and kitchen deep cleans in addition to other niche cleaning product areas. The acquisition of *Clarity provides Emprise with the opportunity to increase the breadth of its self-delivered specialist services offering.
Craig McGilvray, CEO of Emprise, comments: “The acquisition of *Clarity is a good strategic development for Emprise. This further acquisition, which expands our specialist capability, is supporting two of our key strategic objectives by increasing the scale of our provision and self delivering services which meet the needs of our customers. ”
Following the expansion of Emprise through acquisitions in late 2009 and early 2010, the business has restructured its operational delivery model creating two new divisions. Each division is supported by its own Managing Director and provides our core services, cleaning and security, in addition to other related support services to our national client base. Corporate & Commercial: Cleaning, security and support services to clients such as financial services, professional institutions, blue chip headquarters, utilities, health & leisure clubs and the hotel industry; Retail & Key Accounts: Cleaning, security and support services to major retailers, high street stores, shopping centres, theatres, education, family attractions, museums and other large, prestigious public buildings.
Clients include: Waitrose, The John Lewis Partnership, E.ON, David Lloyd Leisure, Derwent London, DTZ, Herbert Smith, Berwin Leighton Paisner, MWB, University of Sussex, The British Library, The National Theatre, BNP Paribas, Workman & Partners, Hilton Hotels, Ambassador Theatre Group, Lambert Smith Hampton.
Emprise currently has a turnover in excess of £75m, and employs over 5,000 people.
