FAS acquires Ashvale
Published:  11 June, 2013

Fire and Air Services Group (FAS) has successfully acquired Ashvale Fire Services.

Ashvale is a key competitor in the north west of the UK with a number of key contracts and LPCB - LPS1048 Level 3 accreditation. The acquisition represented an opportunity for the FAS group to widen its customer base and expand the level of services it is able to offer its current customer base, in addition to adding capacity for new customers. Ashvale’s relationship with a number of clients will complement the FAS customer base and relationships with clients such as TATA Steel are valuable for the combined group’s future growth.

The employees of Ashvale will be integrated into the group’s headquarters in Stockport in the coming months.

Dave Prendergast of FAS commented: “The acquisition of Ashvale is indicative of the approach we are taking to delivering value to customers; gaining LCPB Level 3 accreditation is a significant benchmark for the FAS group. We look forward to providing the Ashvale customers with the excellent service that the FAS group has become renowned for. In addition we welcome the Ashvale staff and look forward to developing the combined business further.”

John Grimes of Ashvale said: “It has been a real pleasure working with Dave and his team at Fire and Air Services Group in the last couple of months. We share a similar outlook on customer service and therefore I am happy that our customer base, built up over the years, will enjoy working with the Group.”
