DCUK FM, the leading experts in the cleaning and decontamination of ventilation systems, ductwork cleaning, management, kitchen extract cleaning and asbestos remediation, are pleased to announce that we are joining forces with Marlowe plc as we look to further enhance our market leading position in the ventilation hygiene and asbestos remediation markets. Marlowe plc is a publicly traded company listed on the London Stock Exchange with a vision to become the UK’s leading provider of critical maintenance services.
DCUK FM will form a new air hygiene division, led by Nigel Jones and the current management team, to sit alongside the Marlowe’s existing activities in fire & security and water treatment services. The business will continue to operate as normal with all the same team and operational Infrastructure, with their people and customers completely unaffected by this opportunity to take the business to the next level.
Nigel Jones commented; “Following many years of growing the business through our own resources I am delighted that DCUK FM is joining forces with Marlowe plc. We now have access to significant resources and are part of one of the UK’s most ambitious service businesses. Marlowe have an excellent track record in supporting businesses and accelerating their growth.
Marlowe and DCUK FM will be a formidable force. We have an excellent operating platform in place with national coverage and a large number of blue chip customers. I believe that we will continue to offer our customers a compelling proposition retaining the benefits of the agile decision making that has been at the forefront of our success.
Joining with Marlowe also provides our team with fantastic opportunities to progress and demonstrates how ambitious we are. The plan is all about delivering more growth and building an even better business than would be possible if we were to remain an independent company.
Today represents a significant step forward for DCUK FM and I am thrilled and excited by the prospects for the business and its customers.”
