Nationwide Window Cleaning (NWC) is on the acquisition trail. The first significant purchase is a Midlands based window cleaning business, Reflekt Cleaning Company Ltd. Founded in 2005, Reflekt has experienced strong year-on-year growth. Clients include the BBC, RAF, Cadbury, Merck Sharpe and Dohme, and Exxon Mobil.
Thornton Tasker, CEO at NWC, said: “Reflekt is a perfect fit for us as it is a high quality, value added, service oriented business with blue chip clients. The Nuneaton base will be beneficial to our clients in the area. Integration into the NWC brand will not be rushed, so will be smooth and seamless. We are delighted to bring Reflekt’s team on board, with the first employee due to start the NWC management development programme, a bespoke training scheme for all our managers.”
June Reynolds, NWC’s group operations director, is overseeing the merger. NWC’s Kevin Dooley, supported by former owner Helen Davies, will manage the Reflekt business.
In addition to offering a full range of window cleaning services, Reflekt provides high level cleaning and dusting, duct cleaning, canopy and roof cleaning, cladding, fascia and gutter cleaning, in all workplaces including commercial buildings, colleges and factories.
The acquisition has been supported by further funding from equity investor BGF, which has supported the business since July 2014. The latest funding round brings the total BGF investment in NWC to £4.5 million.
