Excellerate Services - rebrand of LCC and Templewood draws on international strength

Recently merged cleaning and FM specialists, LCC and Templewood, are rebranding as Excellerate Services. Parent company, Excellerate Services is well-established as a property solutions company across sub-Saharan Africa and now brings its business processes to the UK.

During 2018 LCC Support Services combined with cleaning and security specialist, Templewood Services - already part of the Excellerate group. All three companies have a shared focus on innovation and continuous improvement to ensure quality client care. The group’s strength also comes from its scale and financial stability, as well as its ongoing investment in talent.

In the immediate future the market will see the Excellerate Services brand rolled out across all aspects of the LCC and Templewood Services business including websites, social media platforms, staff uniforms, and signage.

As well as having access to a broader combination of specialist property solutions, existing and new clients will benefit from Excellerate’s technology platforms. Designed to deliver a transparent and efficient service, this includes the Velocity system which enables biometric management of labour, digital management of service level agreements and real-time contract management.

In addition to added capabilities and enhanced offerings in cleaning and FM provision, security expertise in the UK will now be extended by introducing the provision of integrated risk management solutions.

A senior management team is in place to oversee the rebrand and the strategic positioning of the business moving forward. This is led by Excellerate Services CEO, Gordon Hulley. He is joined by: Marna van der Walt, CEO of Excellerate Property Services; Clinton Phipps, CEO of Excellerate Security Services; and Justin Moore, group chief information officer.

Harvey Soning, chairman of Templewood Services, said: “This is an important new phase for the group and for our clients. The group has been working closely together to enhance the breadth and depth of our offering. Presenting our combined capabilities under a single brand is the natural next step and is an exciting new chapter for everyone.”

Phil Smith, group sales director at LCC and Templewood Services, said: “This rebrand reflects our group focus on operational service excellence, innovative technologies and continuous improvement. Through these values and continued investment in the professional development of our people we can further enhance the customer experience and be recognised as leaders in integrated services provision.”
