Summary of mergers and acquisitions in the industrial cleaning sector in 2018

Mergers and acquisitions activity has been really dynamic in the industrial cleaning sector in 2018. This trend to mergers is explained by the difficulties faced in the recruitment in the cleaning and related services sector and the rise of facility management

The Atalian Group, leader in facility management, marked the 2018 financial year with the acquisition of BBA (Holding of Effi Service and Sogepark) and Limpa. These acquisitions strengthen significantly its cleaning division which reaches a turnover of around 950 M€, making it the 2nd largest player of the cleaning and related services sector in France.
