Aktrion buys out remaining 49% of Alpha FM Ltd
Following the acquisition of 51% of Alpha FM Ltd in 2010 as part of Aktrion’s expansion into the food & drink sector, Aktrion have now acquired the remaining 49% as planned in the original agreement. Keith Nathan remains as Managing Director with Alpha FM, now rebranded as Aktrion Food & Drink. Since the acquisition of the original 51% in mid-2010, Alpha FM has more than doubled its sales volume and continues to expand at this rate as the range of services and management resources are developed under Aktrion.
Aktrion Food & Drink wins hygiene contract
In November 2012, Aktrion Food & Drink signed a contract with a major fish ready meals producer to takeover and run all their hygiene cleaning operations. This involved the TUPE transfer of some 30 staff, who have since been supported by additional recruitments by Aktrion and the installation of an Aktrion management team. In addition to providing significant cost savings for the client, Aktrion have been able to steadily develop new standards and remove the worries of hygiene cleaning away from the production management.
Aktrion are continuing to improve processes, procedures and training to ensure the embedding of high standards and efficiency and are also investing in additional equipment and systems.
