Arcus Facilities Management Acquires Trios Group
18 August 2023

Arcus Facilities Management has completed its acquisition of the Trios Group, adding to its mobile engineering, technology, and project delivery service provision.

Arcus has acquired Trios Group in its entirety from its private equity owner Rcapital. The move is part of Arcus’ strategy to become the largest provider of mobile facilities management services in the UK. 

The acquisition is intended to strengthen Arcus’ retail and hospitality offering, as well as open up new opportunities in the blue light and local government sectors. 

Trios employs over 200 people and has a dedicated mobile engineering services division, its own in-house technology platform and a dedicated managed services function. Their portfolio of customers includes Ladbrokes, Royal Mail, Vue Cinema, Harrods, Linnaeus Vets, Rowlands Pharmacy, West Midlands Police, and the Police and Crime Commissioner for West Midlands.

Theresa Bell, Chief Commercial Officer at Arcus FM, will assume the role of Chief Executive Officer of the Trios business, and said of the acquisition, “Trios is a business with exceptional capabilities at its core. I’ve been thoroughly impressed with the individuals and teams that I’ve met throughout the purchase process – passionate people who truly care about the service their customers receive, which aligns so closely to the approach and mindset at Arcus. 

“I’m really excited about what the future holds for both businesses. I look forward to getting to know colleagues across Trios in the coming weeks, understanding their strengths, and where we can draw on the capabilities of the Arcus business for the benefit of our customers, our people, and our collective success.” 

Chris Green, Chief Executive Officer at Arcus FM, added, “Arcus has been on a tremendous growth journey for the past few years – growing with existing customers and adding a stellar crop of new customers in a variety of sectors. It’s great to build on this further and see another key part of our strategy accomplished with a complementary acquisition. 

“The mobile capability of Trios, its use of technology, and the way it serves its customers made it attractive as we look to add scale and bolster our service offering – and we’re looking forward to working with the team there to see how we can collaborate and integrate to drive outstanding facilities management across the country.”
