Over the next three years, The Carling Group, through our company, United Capital, will continue to acquire cash-generating and profitable companies in the fragmented UK building services and facilities management sector. We aim to build group turnover to £300million, generating an EBITDA of circa. £25million over the next three years. All acquired businesses retain autonomy and identity, though efficiencies will be made where identified and we will retain the existing company management team where appropriate, who will be supported by our Board.
The Carling Group and United Capital’s Board of Directors lead teams of experienced staff who will support our delivery of this growth strategy. These teams will form a centralised resource of what we deem to be critical business functions i.e. Marketing, HR, Bid Writing, Finance and Health & Safety, which support our family of businesses to continue to grow.
Our strict criteria for acquisitions are that businesses must be cash-generative, have a strong management team and be winning public sector contracts.
