AcmeUK: The Acme Facilities Group, the Blackburn-based hvac contractor, has acquired Severn Catering Services (SCS).

Established in 1985, Gloucester-based SCS provide a reactive breakdown service and preventative maintenance cover to a wide range of public and private sector organisations throughout mainland UK.

SCS have a strong network of engineers spread across the country and centred in most major UK cities, in particular, London, Manchester, Birmingham, Newcastle and Edinburgh.

ACME, a leading national provider of catering, refrigeration, hvac and fabrication services, sees the acquisition of SCS strengthening its National Catering division.

“SCS joining the group supports our vision of becoming the customer’s single source solutions provider,” said Acme group managing director Chris Allen. “This deal strengthens our engineering coverage and enhances Acme’s expanding catering division, while SCS will be able to offer their customers additional services such as the supply and installation of commercial catering equipment, refrigeration and hvac.”

Established in 1964, initially as a refrigeration company, Acme has since grown to become a specialist in catering equipment, kitchen design and fabrication, as well as air conditioning and refrigeration. Last June, Acme acquired hvac business DPL Services.
