Newport-based Acorn Group has launched its newest specialist division VORSOR Facilities Services.

The new division has been created as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Acorn following continued expansion in the delivery of facility services and management contracts to an extensive range of blue-chip clients.

Mark Rudge, director of operations at VORSOR, said: “The decision was made in late 2018 to develop Acorn's facilities services into a specialist division, enabling us to expand the offering further and allowing the team to provide a fully-tailored, specialist service to our growing number of facilities services clients.

“Now, after almost 12 months of hard work, we are in a position to officially announce VORSOR Facilities Services to the wider world and welcome on board a number of new clients.

VORSOR Facilities Services employs a 250-strong workforce and manages multiple services at a variety of locations UK-wide. Staff and clients including Gestamp, Siemens and WEPA attended a special event held at Acorn’s Cardiff branch to mark its official launch.

“After 14 years delivering extensive facilities services and management contracts to an ever-expanding base of large-scale clients, forming VORSOR was very much the natural next step." Justin Pugh, Facilities Services Director, added.

“With our head office in Newport we are now delivering facilities services UK-wide, totalling a combined value of activity in excess of £8m.”

VORSOR remains a part of the Acorn Group, together with its other subsidiaries Acorn Recruitment, Acorn Rail, Acorn Global and Synaco (Australia), generating a combined turnover of circa £160m.
