CS Group launches growth strategy with new Managing Director

Commercial cleaning and packaging specialists CS Group have appointed Andy Imrie as Managing Director, as part of ambitious growth plans aimed at doubling group turnover over the next three years.

The plan to boost group revenues focuses on continued expansion in Grampian as well as the Highlands, Tayside and Fife, along with new product and service lines into existing and targeted markets.

Commenting on his new role, Andy said: “I’m really excited to be joining the team here at CS Group.

“We are forging ahead with an exciting new vision to create a full ‘business support services’ group for Scotland, fuelled by both organic growth and potential M&A activity. We have great brands, including our Happy Planet range which is committed to providing a sustainable solution to the hospitality sector.

“A key part of our strategy will be to expand further into new sectors beyond our traditional energy-focussed customer base, identify new products and services and bringing the quality, reliable and trustworthy service CS Group are known for to all our clients.”

Andy joins CS Group as part of a seven-figure transaction, which will eventually see him take a major shareholding in the business.

The group is made up of commercial cleaning services provider Contract Solutions Grampian, as well as industrial and food packaging supplier Grampian Packaging Supplies.

Alan Merchant, who founded the business in 1992, remains to support growth plans alongside Jim Clark, a prolific entrepreneur who also holds the position of chairman at food waste collections business Keenan Recycling and non-executive director at construction group CHAP.

Jim Clark added: “Andy will be a great addition to the team. He brings professionalism, enthusiasm and ambition to a long established business looking to address new market trends. Andy will lead from the front using his accumulated knowledge and extensive contacts to further develop CS Group. “

Andy draws upon a quarter-century of experience in private-equity backed and blue-chip positions across several sectors. He joins a diverse management team, including Finance Director Laura Sutherland, General Manager of CSG and board director Louise Buchan and recently-appointed General Manager of GPS, Russell Leith.
