NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Temco Service Industries, Inc. announced today that it was acquired on Friday January 8, 2016 by Atalian International, a leading international provider of facility services, in a merger in which the existing Temco entity was the surviving corporation.
“In Europe and other countries outside the U.S. Atalian is a brand name in facilities management. We believe that teaming up with Atalian will enable us to better service our existing customer base and more effectively broaden and deepen that base,” commented Henrik Thomassian, Temco’s CEO. “Atalian’s resources will enable us to develop more fully integrated facilities services offerings, provide us with a broader geographic footprint and afford us the benefit of larger economies of scale than we could have achieved independently.” Mr. Thomassian will remain CEO of Temco under the new ownership.
