In 2020, Morgan Fire Protection was acquired by Marlowe plc, a UK leader in specialist services which assure the safety and regulatory compliance of commercial properties, whilst managing risk for businesses across the country.
Marlowe delivers health & safety, software, HR & employment law and occupational health compliance, risk & compliance software, fire safety & security, water treatment & hygiene, air testing & quality – all of which are vital to the wellbeing of our customers’ operations and are invariably governed by stringent regulation.
The Marlowe group consists of a number of leading businesses which provide technology-enabled services across five main regulated safety & compliance sectors. Marlowe currently employs 2,500 people across the UK, provides services to approximately 20% of Britain’s commercial premises and is increasingly attractive to businesses who want a single outsourced, nationwide, provider of a comprehensive range of regulated health, safety and compliance services.
Our clients can be found in most office complexes, high streets and leisure facilities, manufacturing plants and industrial estates, and include thousands of SMEs, large corporates, facilities and property management providers, local authorities, NHS trusts and FTSE 100 companies.
About Marlowe plc
Marlowe is a well-established London Stock Exchange listed company which was formed to build a group of the leading specialists in their field with a vision to become the UK’s most trusted name in the provision of regulated safety & compliance services.
Marlowe’s unique strength is that it provides a range of closely related regulated inspection, testing and technology-enabled compliance services each of which is delivered by one of our specialist divisions.
Individually, these businesses are leaders in their fields but together form a group that can provide our customers with a comprehensive and integrated approach to their safety, regulatory compliance and the upkeep of the building systems they rely on. That means more convenience, better across the board compliance, greater consistency and the benefits of a trusted in-depth relationship.
More importantly, our size, range and extensive national footprint gives our customers the peace of mind that comes from knowing that they can rely on Marlowe to deliver those mission critical services that are so vital to them every day of the year in every part of the UK.
The Marlowe business philosophy
Marlowe was formed to create sustainable shareholder value through the growth and development of businesses that provide regulated compliance services.
Our decentralised operating model gives our businesses considerable autonomy within a disciplined and well-defined strategic framework.
Our managers are empowered to make the decisions that they need to grow their businesses in their markets.
Our model seeks to enable our companies to retain the agility of entrepreneurial private businesses whilst providing them with the resources of a much larger listed company, to help them unlock their potential and stewards their rapid growth in a way that ensures that all of the key stakeholders are focused on value creation.
The Marlowe model
“The potential offered by the fragmented service sectors that we identify combined with our disciplined approach to M&A, quick decision making and the operational improvements we implement, when married with our access to capital to invest in growth, creates superior returns and provides a platform for significant growth.”
