The rebrand reflects the commercial contract cleaning provider’s decision to evolve its business to a multi-service FM provider, offering customers a wider range of services including mechanical and electrical, waste management and specialist cleaning.
The rebrand demonstrates a significant step forward in Ecoserv Group’s growth strategy which will see the company targeting strategic acquisitions and partnerships, alongside continued investment in the existing business. This follows the acquisition of The JPM Group of Companies Ltd (JPM) in April, as part of plans to not only diversify, but also expand its presence within established and new cleaning sectors – most notably the film industry – and continue to develop its nationwide network.
Jean-Henri Beukes, Chief Executive Officer at Ecoserv Group commented: “Ecoserv Group has been a growth company for a number of years, but it has been during the last 15 months that has truly demonstrated its commitment to expanding the size, scope and profitability of the business. We have taken significant strides throughout the pandemic to double our turnover by proactively targeting organic growth and acquisitions. The rebrand is a pivotal milestone for the business, representing our ambition as one of the fastest-growing companies within the FM sector.”
The rebrand coincides with Ecoserv Group strengthening its commitment to sustainability, working closely with customers to offer new services to support their ecological journey. In addition, the business has established a strategic plan to achieve Net Zero by 2030, taking steps to measure its carbon footprint and commit to reduction targets. It is continuously exploring the benefits of providing low impact services to customers, including the use of environmental cleaning products and recycling.
Beukes added: “As an eco-engaged business with a green heritage, Ecoserv Group is committed to being sustainable in the communities it operates. This year, we have introduced a roadmap that will ensure we commit to a range of environmental and social sustainability targets. Our next steps are to determine our exact carbon footprint and validate any existing assessments. This will enable us to set specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and timely (SMART) emission reduction targets and develop an effective strategy to achieve them. We look forward to sharing our renewed sustainable vision with our customers going forward.”
In order to understand how FMs have navigated their way through the last year and their plans for meeting stringent waste and recycling targets we’ve posed a series of questions – aided by the advice and experience of our editorial steering committee.
The results of the 2021 survey will be published in FMJ magazine and form the basis of a white paper co-written by FMJ and the experts at Grundon on how to approach waste and recycling strategies.
