The existing management team will remain and become part of the Incentive FM Group. Commenting on the acquisition Jeremy Waud, Managing Director at Incentive FM Group, said: “Unlike most of our competitors we are very flexible and as an SME organisation with an unusual breadth of offer, our customers really get the solution that suits them best, rather being shoehorned into an off the shelf standard contract.

The high profile and high quality Lynx security service is complementary to Incentive FM Group’s contract cleaning, consultancy and facilities management activities and broadens our range of services for customers.” Craig Pickard, Managing Director at Incentive Lynx Security Ltd, said: “We have worked closely with Incentive FM over the years and always been impressed with their commitment to a quality service which we feel mirrors our own. For our customers it is business as usual except that they will now have the added benefits of us being part of a stronger and broader FM services organisation.”  Interconnective’s Logue Corporate assisted with the acquisition process.
