Apleona acquires Irish firm Neylons Facility Management

Apleona has signed an agreement to acquire Neylons Facility Management, one of the largest owner-managed integrated facility management providers in Ireland

Headquartered in Loughrea, Co. Galway Neylon Facility Management has approximately 900 full-time employees throughout Ireland who provide a full range of FM services to clients, including numerous pharmaceutical and life sciences clients. The business also includes subsidiary companies providing specialist services including water treatment and energy services.

Apleona Ireland has almost 1,800 employees and is an established IFM service provider with a considerable number of industrial customers in sectors such as pharmaceutical, manufacturing and commercial. The Neylons Facility Management acquisition significantly expands Apleona’s leading market position in Ireland as an integrated facility management provider with a focus on customer services and will make it one of the leading providers in this market segment in the future. A key unique selling point is the high level of self-delivery across the entire range of services.

CEO for Apleona Group, Dr. Jochen Keysberg, commented: “Together, the two companies form a very effective platform as their business models and customer portfolios are a perfect fit, helping ensure strong organic growth in the future with new and existing Apleona customers in Ireland and Europe.”

Ray Casey, Managing Director Apleona Ireland said: “This merger will strengthen the great service both Apleona & Neylons Facility Management currently deliver today. I would like to take this opportunity to welcome the Neylons Facility Management team to the Apleona family. Together we can achieve more.”

Maria Sava, Chief Executive Officer, Neylons Facility Management added: “Neylons Facility Management are delighted to join the Apleona team. Both organisations share the same vision of being the supplier of choice by tailoring our services to meet the ever-changing needs of our customers. As part of Apleona we will have the ability to further enhance the services we provide, which will give us the ability to accelerate our growth in the coming years. We are looking forward to working with Ray and the rest of the Apleona team.”

The transaction is expected to close by the middle of 2024.

Navigating FM efforts to sustainability 

As environmental protection demands unified action, transparency, and heightened awareness, Biological Preparations has launched an initiative to catalyse sustainability efforts within the FM sector.

FM businesses face unique challenges and heightened expectations of eco-initiatives from their clients. Yet, behind the scenes in FM businesses, many environmental initiatives, rollouts and even planning, are not broadcasted and transparent.

Have your say: Sustainability Trends in FM 

The UK biotech company’s five-minute, anonymous FM-focused survey, offers FM professionals of all hierarchies with a platform to voice their perspectives and share their experiences. The results from this survey will then be analysed and presented as an industry-specific report, which aims to guide FM businesses helping them benchmark trends, gain clarity on industry challenges, and map out goals and metrics towards sustainability.
