Manchester-based facilities management provider, Tudor Group, has acquired Cardiff-based cleaning contractor, A Quality Service (AQS).
Established in 2011, AQS specialises in stadium cleaning, as well as providing commercial cleaning for a variety of customers from factories and offices to the NHS.
Tudor Group provides a wide range of commercial cleaning services to clients nationwide and has been doing so for the last 30 years.
The company has private equity backing from Foresight Group, who made its original investment in 2016. Since then, Tudor has scaled operations, introducing improvements to health and safety, finance and IT systems. The acquisition of AQS – on the back of a £1.1m boost – will allow it to grow revenues further.
Claire Alvarez, director at Foresight, said: "AQS will be a valuable asset to the company and enable Tudor to increase its scope and reach into Wales and beyond. It has been a pleasure to work alongside the management team since our investment in 2016 and we look forward to continuing to support them and their growth ambitions in the future."
Fabien Caqueret, managing director at Tudor, added: "The addition of AQS and its customer relationships to the Tudor Group's own portfolio of five-star customers represents a fantastic opportunity to consolidate years of expertise within the industry and provides a genuine platform for growth.
"Gillian, Robin and the AQS team have an impressive track record of delivering outstanding services to many blue-chip organisations, with a real focus on providing exceptional customer service."
