OCS goes for growth with acquisition of Legion Group

26 August 2010

Leading support services provider OCS Group UK Limited has acquired the business and assets of Legion Group plc and Legion FM Limited from John Whitfield, Paul Williams and Paul Clark of MCR in their capacity of administrators of the companies.

The deal adds around 500 new clients to OCS’s existing security business. It also secures a future for 2,800 Legion staff and service continuity for customers following the company being placed into administration earlier this week.

 

The agreement sees OCS take control of all Legion assets including contract turnover in excess of £50 million covering manned guarding and car parking activities throughout the UK.

 

OCS Group UK MD Martin Gammon said, “This acquisition forms a key part of our growth strategy and further develops the company’s capacity to provide Total Facilities Management services.  It is a clear demonstration of our determination to emerge from the current period of economic uncertainty in a strong position as a leading player in the FM market.

 

“As the UK’s longest established provider of security services, Legion Group is a very strong brand and enhances our offering within the security sector. 

 

“The Legion Group has a professional and dedicated workforce with a highly respected reputation. We believe its history and values are a perfect fit with the OCS company ethos,” concluded Gammon.
