Vertas opened its doors officially to celebrate the recent move to a new office and complete company rebrand.
Vertas Group Limited, formerly known as Eastern Facilities Management Solutions (EFMS) is a Suffolk-based employer of over 2,000 staff in Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire and Essex.
The open event created an opportunity for Vertas to officially mark the change to a new name, new location and showcase the services it offers. It also allowed the business to promote some of the strong, local partnerships it has with suppliers; such as Marriage’s Millers, MorVend Vending and Source One consulting who exhibited at the event.
Many customers, stakeholders and staff attended the event to celebrate in the success the company has had over the last year. Since the new executive team joined the organisation at the end of 2014, they have worked hard to change the way in which the company operates, in doing so the company has gone from operating in a loss to a substantial profit.
The wholly owned subsidiary of SCC has undergone major changes over the last few months; allowing the business to grow and improve on its support to clients including Suffolk County Council and over 300 schools in the region. To allow Vertas to build on its vision for growth and expansion within the company, the head office moved to Beacon House on the Landmark Business Park in September.
This move into a newer, bigger and more geographically convenient office space, allows for better access to customers and staff. The office building is neighbouring Landmark House where Vertas currently operates services for Suffolk County Council and Police staff.
Ian Surtees, Group Managing Director for Vertas, said:
“On behalf of the executive team at Beacon House, I want to say a huge thank you to all who came and supported our open event, it was great to see our suppliers, customers, friends and colleagues enjoy the new office space.
“Since launching our new strategic plans with Vertas Group in September we have celebrated many successes, including; business acquisitions, growth in client base and innovative new partnerships. These developments have moulded us into the business we are today and we look forward to enjoying many more successes in years to come.”
