Posted 11/04/2019 : By: Debbie Dennis
Cleaning and maintenance franchise Fantastic Services has acquired the London-based company My Plumber.
The purchase of My Plumber marks another period of expansion for Fantastic Services, as it expects to process customer orders worth £40million in 2019, an increase of £7.5million on the previous year.
Formed in 2009, Fantastic Services already has more than 300 franchising partners, providing more than 25 professional services throughout the UK, including gardening, waste removal and pest control services. This latest deal will see Fantastic Services move into the plumbing and heating market for the first time.
Fantastic Services co-founder Rune Sovndahl says: “Demand for reliable plumbers has never been higher. We’re delighted to add My Plumber to our growing portfolio and be able to offer our customers plumbing services.
“We are intent on building a customer-focused position in the plumbing and heating services market that will seriously challenge the established players.
“We’re delighted to add My Plumber to our growing portfolio – and to be able to offer our customers plumbing services for the very first time.”
All existing My Plumber staff will be retained as part of the deal.
Angie Lyons-Redman, owner of My Plumber, adds: “I am delighted to be in a position to sell My Plumber to Fantastic Services, a company that shares my passion for customer services.
“I believe that the staff and customers will benefit massively from the investment that Fantastic Services can provide and I look forward to seeing the next chapter for the business.”
