Global facilities service provider OCS has acquired Accuro, a UK provider of facilities management services to the education and healthcare sectors.
Founded in 2005, Accuro is a provider of facilities management services to clients across the Midlands, East Anglia, and the North of England.
It holds a portfolio of long-term contracts mostly within the healthcare sector. More recently, Accuro has diversified into the education sector with a focus on cleaning services.
The acquisition is OCS’s first since it merged with Atalian Servest’s UK, Ireland and Asia operations following significant investment from private equity firm Clayton, Dubilier & Rice earlier in 2023.
In addition to acquisitive growth, 2023 has seen OCS deliver on its organic growth targets including significant new business wins such as contracts with the Government Property Agency, Irish Rail, and Royal Parks.
Daniel Dickson, UK & Ireland CEO of OCS commented: “We are delighted to be announcing this deal which marks a significant milestone for OCS. I have long admired the quality service Accuro offers as well as its commitment to upholding its strong values as a business. Since Nigel founded Accuro in 2005, the business has had a track record of delivering the highest levels of service to its customers. Accuro’s in-depth knowledge of the UK’s education and healthcare sectors are extremely complementary of OCS’ existing public sector offering and will play a part in the delivery of our growth plans in the coming years.”
Nigel Prothero, CEO of Accuro Group Holdings, commented: “Over the last 18 years we have provided our customers with a unique and tailored service, which in turn, has delivered the business consistent growth. We have a great team of people with passion, focus and high integrity and I’m very proud of our organisation we have built.
“OCS is one of the leading facilities service providers in the market with an evident commitment to providing the best level of service to their customers. I believe Accuro’s values and culture are aligned with those of OCS and together we’ll be able to provide a market leading service, ultimately driving the growth of the business for years to come.”
