AB Group sells cleaning division to Coating and Blasting Services

AB Group, the Swansea-based business that includes glass manufacturing and installation company AB Glass, has sold its commercial cleaning division to Coating and Blasting Services (CABS), a Swansea-based provider of blast cleaning services.

Architectural Cleaning Services (ACS), the commercial cleaning division of AB Group, undertakes commercial cleaning, maintenance, protection and restoration services throughout the UK.

CABS provides painting and environmentally friendly blast cleaning services to all industry sectors. It was established in 2012 and recently completed a 16-week specialist job cleaning the landmark Guildhall Clock Tower building in Swansea. Due to the sensitive nature of the work, no chemicals were used.

The terms of the recent acquisition were not disclosed. AB Group will retain a 20{0a1c16881c6066bf0894975060704e806027e1c582dd394319fe87346603789b} stake in ACS.

Alan Brayley, Group Director of AB Group, said:

“Job security was fundamental during the acquisition process. We feel this deal will greatly benefit both companies securing and even increasing job opportunities locally. AB Glass and CABS will be working closely together to ensure a smooth transition. Cross recommendation between the two businesses will be one of the key factors to the success of ACS going forward.

“With the added benefits and services that CABS can offer I am confident the future will be very good for both partners. CABS are very well positioned to do a fantastic job for our existing client base and together we will be looking to continue to grow the company going forward.”

Stuart Thomas, Managing Director of CABS, said: “We are extremely excited about our acquisition of ACS and our close association with AB Glass.

“The services we can now offer through ACS allow us to give our clients a complete package from start to finish on their projects.

“It is testament to the hard work of our staff that we have established ourselves in such a short period of time as the premier commercial building refurbishment and facade cleaning company in South Wales.

“We know we will grow ACS allowing us to create local employment and also offer all our clients a first class service that is unrivalled in our industry.”
