M Group Services expands utilities division with TPC acquisition
M Group Services, the parent company of Morrison Utility Services, has announced that its new wastewater network services subsidiary, IWJS, has completed the acquisition of the drainage division of Tomato Plant Company (TPC).
As a specialist wastewater network service provider to the transport, utility and industrial sectors, TPC undertakes high-pressure jetting, interceptor maintenance, pollution and flood management, sewer rehabilitation, CCTV inspection and liquid waste haulage.
Following the acquisition, TPC will be rebranded as IWJS Specialist Services, providing IWJS with complementary lining, sewer cleaning and maintenance capability and specialist expertise on working in airside environments.
M Group Services chief executive Jim Arnold said: “Since inception, TPC has achieved impressive growth, delivered through investment in skilled staff and specialist equipment, as well as a strong service delivery reputation.
“This acquisition broadens the scope of capability within IWJS and we have identified a number of opportunities to accelerate the growth of IWJS Specialist Services and to offer wider support for other M Group Services businesses. We are delighted to welcome TPC into IWJS and as a member of M Group Services.”
Keith Williams, the selling owner of TPC, comments: “Over the years, TPC has established a reputation as a trusted, specialist wastewater service supplier for Heathrow Airport and other clients. I would like to wish TPC every success in its work as part of IWJS and M Group Services.”
Williams will retain ownership of the company's plant haulage division as well as Tomato Tyres and Plumb Tomatoes.
M Group Services announced the acquisition of IWJS last month.
