OCS Acquires New Business And Assets, Saving Over 500 UK Jobs

OCS has acquired certain business and assets of Euro Dismantling Services, EDS Plant Solutions and EDS Group Holdings (subsidiaries of Silverdell plc) from Joint Administrators at BDO. The acquired business units comprise the Decontamination, Access & Insulation and Nuclear trading divisions operated by EDS.

The move by OCS will save over 500 UK jobs in Silverdell, which specialises in providing decontamination and environmental services such as asbestos removal and other decontamination work in high hazard areas and nuclear sites.

According to regulatory news filings with London Stock Exchange, Silverdell encountered financial

problems when a subsidiary went into administration in Summer 2013. OCS was made aware of the opportunity on 23rd December, and worked over Christmas to undertake due diligence and close the deal.

“The specialist services provided by the acquired business units will complement our core facilities management offering,” said Martin Gammon, Chief Executive Officer for OCS Group UK and Europe. “This acquisition once again demonstrates our unique ability to move swiftly to secure deals in distressed circumstances.”

Silverdell is a well-regarded provider in the demanding, regulated environmental services sector, and the acquired business brings

Delphis Eco Receives Royal Warrant From Prince Of Wales

Delphis Eco has been granted a Royal Warrant of Appointment to His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, for the provision of Environmentally Friendly Cleaning Products. Last year, although tough economically, saw Delphis Eco not only win the B2B Category at the EU EcoLable Communication Awards, only the second time a UK company has won this prestigious award, but has also ended the year with an incredible accolade from The Prince of Wales.

The decision to award a Royal Warrant is made by The Lord Chamberlain’s office, and comes after a company has delivered consistently high-quality services to one or more of the Royal Households for a period of five years. Royal Warrants have always been regarded as demonstrating service, quality and excellence, and are highly prized. Now, Delphis Eco has earned the honour of displaying the Royal Arms in recognition of its service.


Mark Jankovich, Chief Executive at Delphis Eco, welcomes the Royal Warrant. He said: “We are delighted that Delphis Eco and the teams’ hard work and dedication to providing quality environmentally-friendly products has been recognised in this way. We are honoured that the Prince of Wales would choose to bestow this award on us, and hope that it will encourage other people to select more environmentally friendly products. We are also proud to join an elite group that is able to show the Royal Arms in recognition of their commitment to the highest standards of service, quality and excellence. It is truly a great start to the year!”

Delphis Eco manufactures award- winning green cleaning chemicals, and nothing else. It is the only company in its sector to exclusively manufacture its product range in the UK, and was the first UK company to get EU Ecolabel accreditation for its cleaning products. In fact, Delphis Eco has the largest

accredited product range available and it is ever growing.

The company’s commitment to sustainable cleaning products has seen the manufacturer become the first chemical company to partner with Keep Britain Tidy and Eco- Schools, The Sustainable Restaurant Association, and the Green Tourism Business Scheme.

With a vision to be the world’s leading innovator of ecological cleaning products, Delphis Eco ensure that every aspect of their development and manufacture deliver the best possible solutions for the end user, whilst maintaining a deep sustainability ethos.

Delphis Eco looks forward to another exciting year helping schools, universities and catering facilities switch to a more environmentally friendly range. International expansions continue and the company is actively looking for distributors across Europe and the Middle East.

a combination of highly skilled people, specialist equipment and strong client relationships, including a number of public sector and blue chip organisations.

“OCS and Silverdell are already serving the same market sectors and, in some cases, the same clients. This acquisition means we will be able to offer both sets of clients a broader set of associated services, to help manage their assets and environments from a single point of contact,” said Martin.
