Siteserv is set to acquire Yorkshire based Deborah Services for up to £48m

The proposed acquisition of the Wakefield construction support services provider will be put to shareholders at an extraordinary general meeting on 19 February.

Siteserv chief executive Brian Harvey said: “The acquisition will provide Siteserv with an immediate and significant presence in the UK where Deborah Services is one of the market leaders.”
