Top Track 250

Established as part of Sainsbury’s in 2009, this facilities management provider became independent in February following a management buyout by ESO Capital, which took a minority stake for an undisclosed sum. It provides services including cleaning, mechanical maintenance and managing distribution centres for clients such as Sainsbury’s, Hermes and the Co-op. In June, it partnered with GMS Group to expand into security. During the pandemic, Arcus has supported its clients by providing essential services and setting up a hardship fund providing vouchers to its employees most in need.
