About the company
This European-based business services group was founded in 1925 as a pest-control business but subsequently expanded and diversified, in part through organic growth under its leadership in the 1980s and 1990s, and in part, through the acquisitions in the 1990s, making it into a business delivering a wide range of facilities management services.
