The company previously operated in the UK as a real-estate advisory with its own brand under the umbrella of Apleona.
Apleona CEO, Dr Jochen Keysberg, said: “Apleona’s first financial year showed that the differing business models of GVA as an advisor and Apleona as a real-estate manager were each very successful in themselves, but must meet the requirements of their respective markets and customer groups in a very different way. In this respect, it makes sense and is right for both companies to go their separate ways in pursuing further commercial success.”
Apleona has also confirmed it will now be focusing its range of services on technical, infrastructural and commercial management of real estate, plant and production facilities. The aim is to benefit strongly from the growing trend towards outsourcing of management services and secondary processes in many industries and grow rapidly throughout Europe.
Dr Jochen Keysberg, added: “Industrial and real-estate companies are increasingly looking for service partners that can take on their respective portfolios across regions with consistent quality and across the entire scope of services by themselves as a one-stop shop, from technical and infrastructural facility management to real-estate management and handling of secondary processes. We have met precisely this type of demand successfully in recent years, and are now rigorously stepping up this business as a result.”
The Apleona Group has a strong presence in all UK markets as a real-estate and facility manager with Apleona HSG Limited.
