The move sees two more companies move towards the integrated facilities management model CE Facilities Services has announced further expansion with the purchase of the UK division of Octavian Security. The move sees two more companies move towards the integrated Facilities Management model, which is becoming ever more popular with UK businesses. The deal sees CE Facilities Services purchase Octavian Security UK only, with the next phase seeing Octavian Security UK absorbed into the CE Facilities Services brand. Octavian’s other divisions in the USA, Middle East, Africa and Asia will remain under the Octavian brand name and continue under the guidance of CEO and entrepreneur, Sukhi Ghuman. Promote “bundled service” offerings Octavian Security UK has seen a trend towards the integration of services and has been actively seeking to find the correct Facilities Management partner for a number of years to promote a move towards more “bundled service” offerings. Octavian Security UK will continue to operate from their offices at Octavian House, Riverside Business Park, Nottingham NG2 1RX with all day to day management remaining in place. Mr Ghuman launched Octavian 13 years ago, with recent successes including significant expansion in the Middle East – as well as a new training academy which currently operates from its head office in Nottingham. The decision to sell the UK division comes as commitments overseas mean that the UK portion of the business needs more attention than he can currently provide. Welcome of a specialist security team CE Facilities Services has always had a quality security division, however the acquisition of Octavian Security UK gives the company a huge advantage, allowing it to welcome an experienced and specialist security team to the company. It also places CE Facilities Services firmly in the top thirty UK security providers. Tomas Gronager, Group CEO of CE Facilities Services commented: “This exciting development will make CE Facilities Services unique in that we will be able to offer our clients, both new and existing, an exclusive service offering that brings together two of the very best service delivery organisations in their respective fields, and to provide the services that demonstrate innovation, passion and energy. CE Facilities Services is an exceptional company, and shares the same drive and ambition as Octavian, to achieve 100% customer satisfaction through service delivery.” Sukhi Ghuman, CEO of Octavian, added: “The Octavian brand will still be present in overseas markets, but I will no longer be CEO of Octavian UK. Octavian UK is a very successful business – but recent successes overseas mean that the UK division needs more attention than I can provide. “CE Facilities Services is a fantastic company with an excellent reputation. Job security will be maintained and I’m confident that this move will take the business to the next level and continue its legacy. I wish CE Facilities Services the very best with this arrangement and expect to be working closely with them over the coming weeks to make the transition as smooth as possible. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who played a role in making Octavian UK a success.” Both parties will collectively maintain the highest level of service that its customers have grown accustomed to, whilst also continuing to build on both companies success. Both companies are excited about this new opportunity and are committed to ensuring a seamless transition with minimal disruption to the level of service and management clients receive. The main focus continues to be on providing exceptional client service and a quality product, delivered by a familiar and experienced team. CE Security supports the Security Industry Authorities objective of protecting the public by raising standards.
