Fidelis Contract Services acquired by REACT plc

We are delighted to announce Fidelis Group has been acquired by REACT Group plc, a specialist in cleaning, hygiene and decontamination services.

This marks the first acquisition for the Derbyshire based business as part of their value-accretive growth strategy.

Fidelis was founded by Lloyd Ansermoz over 10 years ago and has built a strong reputation delivering high quality contract cleaning and hygiene services, ranging from daily housekeeping and washroom hygiene services through to building and caretaker services.

In recent years, Fidelis established ourselves as one of the leading providers of commercial contract cleaning within the education, healthcare and manufacturing sectors.

Lloyd Ansermoz will remain a shareholder in the enlarged business and, along with all of the team at Fidelis, is an integral part of the management team going forward.

Our long term contract cleaning services complement REACT specialising in the provision of reactive cleaning, allowing both organisations to further their relationships with existing clients whilst creating a unique and valuable cleaning services proposition.

Mark Braund, Executive Chairman of REACT, commented:

“We are delighted to announce the acquisition of Fidelis, our maiden acquisition and an important milestone in our stated goal to become the country’s most trusted name in the provision of specialist cleaning, decontamination and hygiene services.

The acquisition is expected to be immediately earnings enhancing and leaves REACT well positioned to continue to increase market share. The combination of our recent organic growth and the Fidelis acquisition leaves us well positioned to deliver material growth in the current financial year.

We welcome Lloyd and the Fidelis team into the REACT group and look forward to working with them.”

Lloyd Ansermoz, Previous Managing Director of Fidelis Contract Services, commented:

“I am delighted to announce Fidelis is to join forces with the REACT Group in a move to provide our Customers with an exceptional range of specialist cleaning and facilities management services, and our Colleagues with the opportunity and security of being part of an enlarged business with the same strength of values and culture as the Fidelis business we began some 10-years ago.

Just over a year ago, as we looked towards our 10th anniversary, I began searching for a partner to help take Fidelis through the next stage of growth without losing our identity or the values that make our business so special and believe I have found it in the management team at React.”
