Safetykleen Europe is a London based provider of industrial cleaning services and operates principally in Europe, as well as Brazil, China and Turkey.

Apax Partners is an ideal partner for Safetykleen Europe and its management team, led by group CEO Philippe Mauguy, on a new chapter in Safetykleen Europe's journey. With its impressive track record of working strategically with international growth businesses, Apax Partners will support management to develop the business both organically through further increasing market share in expanding international markets, and through strategic acquisitions.

M&A partner Steven Davis led the deal team. He has a longstanding relationship with Safetykleen Europe having advised on the 2008 sale of the group to Warburg Pincus by funds affiliated with JP Morgan Partners. The team included partners Rob Day and Robert Gaut, and associates Sam Bateman and Daniella Abel.
