Kallvest acquires Iqela Security and Cleaning
Kallvest, one of South Africa's leading integrated solutions companies, has acquired top Eastern Cape's security and cleaning service provider, Iqela. The company's services to its clients will continue uninterrupted, but, from 1 March, it will begin to operate under the Kallvest brandmark.
"With a head office in Port Elizabeth and providing services throughout the region to a wide variety of clients, Iqela already has a strong footprint in the province," says Pierre van Wyk, MD of Kallvest.
"In addition to this, we were impressed by the company's strong financials and operational record. Iqela provides a thorough service and goes the extra mile for its clients –something that we strive to do for our clients too; so, we believe that the two companies are a good fit for each other."
According to Van Wyk, the acquisition is line with Kallvest's desire to penetrate the Eastern Cape market and increase its national footprint.
Established in 2008, Iqela owner, Neil Harvey, will remain with the company as Regional Manager of Kallvest Eastern Cape with a material stake in Kallvest EC (Pty) Ltd.
"This was a good step for Iqela as it opens up opportunities for our staff that're keen to gain national experience in our challenging field," says Harvey. "We are excited about working together as we welcome Kallvest's expertise and believe this will also enable greater work experience opportunities for Iqela people. As Kallvest, we also believe the deal will mean an improved service for our clients."
