The acquisition adds to an impressive existing brand portfolio, including LPW Tankwash, LPW Truckwash, Mobile Fleetwash, LPW Fleetcare, LPW Fleetsales, Carlyle Limited and Wilson Contract Services.
Laurie Moon, CEO of LPW, says: “We are delighted to welcome Paul and the Pureclean team into the LPW Group. Pureclean have an unrivalled reputation in the North East, which I am looking forward to see grow across the UK. Together, we are very excited to explore the opportunities allowed by our joint forces.”
Paul Iley of Pureclean comments: “I am incredibly proud of Pureclean’s success since its formation 13 years ago, and have no doubt that this will continue and accelerate as we join the LPW Group. It was important to us to join a group with such ambitious growth plans, while maintaining a strong family culture at the heart of the business. I look forward to working with Laurie and the LPW team to grow Pureclean and contribute to the group’s success.”
