Growth in the UK

In 2017 Excellerate Services acquired a majority stake in the Templewood group of companies. The acquisition was Excellerate’s first in the UK and the partnership marked its intention to develop a major presence through organic growth and by acquisition. Under Excellerate’s majority ownership, the business in the UK was guided by Harvey Soning and continued to operate under the Templewood brand up until 2019. The acquisition delivered a number of benefits including Excellerate’s technology platform, and extensive IP around providing integrated services.

In June 2018 Templewood acquired LCC Support Services a Leading National Cleaning Provider, independently owned with over 20 years experience in customer care. The acquisition of LCC increased the company’s workforce to over 3500 staff in the UK and brought forward a wealth of management experience and increased the depth of overall management capabilities.

In September 2019 the Group was brought together under the name of Excellerate Services UK. With the combined experience and expertise of all three companies, Excellerate Services UK has the insight and foresight to provide clients with an innovative and best in class service.

Our vision is to be the UK’s leading trusted provider of fully integrated, self-performing property related solutions and services, driven by quality, excellence, and forward thinking.
