Amey buys major stake in Jarvis’ Herefordshire business

Contractor Amey yesterday announced the acquisition of Jarvis’ 80% share in Herefordshire Jarvis Services.

The deal sees Amey deliver a wide range of services across Herefordshire, including highways maintenance, with immediate efect.

Amey chief executive Mel Ewell said: “This is a great acquisition for Amey and is a key part of our strategy to develop long term, end-to-end service partnerships in the local government market.”

Owen Williams, Amey’s consultancy business, is already a key partner to Herefordshire County Council, through their consultancy and design contract. Through this contract, and existing partnerships in Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, Cumbria and North Lanarkshire, Amey claims it is increasing its ability to offer the full range of support services to current and future local authority clients.

Ewell added: “This partnership is an excellent strategic fit with our organisation, ensuring we continue to broaden the strength and capabilities of Amey as a key partner to Local Government, helping to deliver their core objectives. We look forward to working within the local community, improving infrastructure across the County and delivering a first class service to both residents and visitors.”
