Mick George Ltd discuss acquiring of DRBS East Ltd and their new recruitment drive in the field of property maintenance and insurance
Predominantly recognised for construction related works of a slightly more hard-hitting nature, Mick George Ltd not too long ago amalgamated many of the company’s specialist services to mount a move in to the Facilities Management market. Their recent acquisition of a maintenance business in Haverhill signals further intent within this particular area.
The business has now strengthened its position by the acquisition of DRBS East Ltd. This regional company, based in Haverhill, has significant experience in the property maintenance and insurance industry. DRBS East has been trading successfully for over 25-years.
It prides itself on a bespoke customer focused service which manages and delivers all aspects of building maintenance requirements. The service caters for planned, responsive, occupied and pre-occupation works. DRBS East provides this niche service to both Developers and Insurance Companies.
High level of service
Due to the consistent high level of service and ability to manage projects in complaintive environments, DRBS East has an impressive client list, including some of the UK’s largest national house builders and insurers.
The credentials of both the Mick George Group and DRBS East Ltd represent a formidable partnership that is already paying dividends with new Clients already requesting similar services.
DRBS East Ltd as a result are experiencing good growth. Consequently, a local recruitment drive is being activated, seeking to attract talented tradesmen within the immediate catchment to work on a sub-contract basis which will bring employment opportunities to the area.
Opportunities are available for, tilers, electricians, plasterers, carpenters, glaziers, decorators, and all other trades who relish the chance to work under both brands.
Discussion is under way to bring other elements of the Mick George Group to Haverhill due to its geographical position and new presence in the town.
David Russo, Director at DRBS East Ltd said: ‘’With high housing targets set out by the Government, the market is particularly buoyant especially in the new-build sector. That combined with the thriving business community that is continuing to attract outsiders to the region, subsequently means that our services are increasingly sought.’’
Jon Stump, Finance Director at Mick George Ltd commented: ‘’Acquiring DRBS East Ltd was a strategic and logical step in developing our Facilities Management offering. Our intention is to quickly establish this service within our core portfolio and working collaboratively with those as experienced as DRBS East Ltd is only likely to accelerate that process. The initial response has been encouraging but it is still very early stages.’’
