Emprise Services acquires Clarity

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

Emprise makes this 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, said: “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.”
