Leadec Acquires Partners in Hygiene

Leadec Acquires Partners in Hygiene
20 September 2021
 

Leadec, the global service specialist for factories, has acquired Partners in Hygiene, a UK-based service provider for the food industry.

This move is intended to strengthen Leadec's footprint in the food and beverage industry as well as in technical cleaning and hygiene services.

The operations of Partners in Hygiene (PiH), as well as its teams at the 14 sites across the UK, will be maintained by Leadec.

Leadec's other recent acquisitions include Diversified Automation in December 2020, an automation controls and software solution provider.

 

Hygiene Services

 

“Hygiene services are well aligned to our strongest UK service line of technical cleaning. PiH’s experience within food factories in the northern UK ideally complements our strategic diversification into the F&B industry and the sharpening of our portfolio in the manufacturing industry,” says Georgi Tschumburidse, Senior Vice President Operations Leadec Eastern Europe/UK.

Partners in Hygiene specialise in high-standard hygiene services for the food and beverage industry. More than 300 employees provide services in the areas of food factory hygiene, kitchen deep cleaning, periodic environmental cleaning and ventilation cleaning. Customers include many food manufacturers based in the north of England and Scotland.

 

Diversification of UK Portfolio for Leadec

 

Leadec has been present in the UK since 1999 and currently employs around 1,500 people here.

“We have found a strong partner in Leadec. PiH is firmly established in the UK food industry; Leadec, in turn, has a global presence and strong technical expertise, including Production Equipment Maintenance and Facility Management. The acquisition will enable us to grow further,” says Peter Barker, one of the three managing directors of PiH.
