The Clean Space acquires Abelian in major deal for commercial cleaning sector  

Long-standing commercial cleaning company, The Clean Space, whose clients include the NHS, Just Eat and The Old Vic, has acquired competitor Abelian UK Ltd as part of the company’s ambitious growth plans.

The combined organisation will significantly increase resources and capabilities for The Clean Space, allowing the business to compete more effectively and profitably in London and the Southeast.

Charlie Mowat, CEO of The Clean Space said of the recent acquisition: “We’re delighted by this major acquisition. We chose Abelian because of the excellent synergy between the two companies, and because of the clear similarities in our customer base, both by locations and sectors.  

“We’re excited to be able to offer Abelian’s existing customer base further services to bolster their cleaning initiatives, such as our all natural, probiotic cleaning solutions. 

We saw a great fit with Abelian and are excited to be creating one, larger and even stronger team.” 

With over 19 years’ experience in the sector, The Clean Space now employs over 550 cleaners and 25 head office staff to deliver commercial cleaning services to customers nationwide. The move is part of wider plans for further strategic expansion and growth over the next five years. 

Stefano Cabras, Managing Director at The Clean Space commented: “We’re pleased to welcome the Abelian team and its customers into The Clean Space culture. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank both teams for their openness, loyalty and dedication during the integration process. It has been smooth and harmonic, which is testament to the hard work, collaboration and experience on both sides.”
