Apleona Completes Trio of FM Acquisitions With Dublin’s Acacia
19 October 2022

Apleona has acquired one of the top three integrated facilities management companies in Ireland, Acacia.

The global Apleona Group signed the agreement on 14 October 2022, to acquire Acacia Facilities Holdings Limited and its subsidiary Acacia Facilities Management Limited. The financial details of the transaction have not been disclosed.

Acacia joins Combined Technical Solutions and FM Solutions Sp z o.o. who have both joined the Apelona Group in 2022.


Expanding Apleona’s Technical Expertise in Ireland


Apleona Ireland has almost 1,300 employees and is an established IFM service provider. The acquisition of Acacia is a move to strengthen its market position in the country, and expand its technical services.

Acacia has approximately 230 employees across Ireland who provide FM services and ESG consulting services across numerous global companies, including the European headquarters of many major blue-chip companies based in Dublin.

COO for Apleona Group, Michael Engel, responsible for international and major customer business at Apleona as part of international, integrated mandates, commented: “Together, the two companies form a very effective platform as their business models and customer portfolios are a perfect fit, helping ensure strong organic growth in the future with new and existing Apleona customers in Ireland and Europe.”

Ray Casey, Managing Director Apleona Ireland added: “This merger will strengthen the great service both Apleona and Acacia currently deliver today. I would like to take this opportunity to welcome the Acacia team to the Apleona family. Together we can achieve more.”

David O’Brien, Managing Director Acacia said: “Acacia are delighted to join the Apleona team. Both organisations share the same vision of being the supplier of choice by tailoring our services to meet the ever changing needs of our customers. As part of Apleona, we will have the ability to further enhance the services we provide, which will give us the ability to accelerate our growth in the coming years. We are looking forward to working with Ray Casey and the rest of the Apleona team.”
