Arcus has joined forces with national security firm, GMS Group, which will enable the facilities management firm to offer a a comprehensive security service across the UK.
Arcus currently delivers a blend of hard and soft services with technology-led solutions for clients in retail, logistics and the public sector.
Since 1998, Bromsgrove-based GMS Group has been supporting clients such as Jaguar Land Rover, Cemex, VAX, Aston Martin and Kerry Foods, many of which have been customers for more than a decade.
The new partnership will see both companies working together with existing clients and exploring new business opportunities.
Speaking about the partnership, CEO of GMS Group Neil Male, said: “We’ve been approached many times by large FM companies wanting to work with us, but such opportunities have never suited our way of working. Being at the forefront of the customer relationship is what we do best, and this move strongly aligns with Arcus’ ethos, making it a natural collaboration.”
Chris Green, CEO of Arcus, said: “At Arcus delivering a winning service for our clients is one of our core principles. There is a clear synergy between the way both businesses work, with a strong emphasis on client service which makes for a good fit.
“We look forward to working in partnership with GMS Group, a company who are deeply rooted in the security sector, strengthening our offer for current and future clients.”
