Growing a company by international aquisition
A Davis Service Group case study

Page 6: Conclusion

The Davis Service Group needed to grow. Of its original three divisions, the linen hire and textile maintenance services provided by Sunlight offered the greatest opportunities because of the strategic fit factors.

The Group's other businesses were sold off to concentrate on the potential of the enlarged European textile maintenance business and to provide funds to invest further in this business.

The Davis Service Group is an international business. However, it believes in giving local people responsibility for managing the markets they know best. It has a decentralised approach. The small London Head Office has just 17 people working there. Local managers manage local companies using their expertise in their own markets.
