OCS Group UK Limited has today acquired part of the business and assets of Fountains Environmental Limited (in Administration), Fountains Limited (in Administration), Fountains Forestry Limited (in Administration) and Fountains Support Services Limited (in Administration) (“the Companies”) from Antony David Nygate and Shay Bannon in their capacity as Administrators of the Companies.

Martin Gammon, Managing Director of OCS Group UK, said, “This is great news for everyone at OCS and a clear demonstration of our intention to further develop our strong position as a leading player in the UK FM market.
