SitexOrbis invests in South West region


Published by Magenta Associates for Sitex Orbis Ltd in Housing

Vacant property expert SitexOrbis has further invested in its regional approach by formally recognising the South West as a stand-alone region, formed of the existing Bristol and Cardiff depots.

The move will see the creation of a new administrator post in Cardiff. In the medium term, the Bristol team will move from its existing depot to a larger depot and office to better facilitate the operational positioning of the business.

Following the January 2013 acquisition by a consortium of experienced, patient and well-funded private individuals, the business was restructured to refocus on its regional businesses with close local relationships to customers. The formal creation of the South West region is a further indication of that strategy.

Work on social housing properties accounts for 70 per cent of the business in the South West region while commercial property work accounts for around 30 per cent. Pest control makes up a sizeable portion of the work in Bristol, which has the biggest rat problem in the UK outside of London.

John Sobey, Branch Manager (South West), who will oversee the running of the region, said: “I’m delighted that SitexOrbis is recognising the South West as a standalone region. This is the latest step in an approach to focus on local relationships and bring the business ever closer to our customers.”
