The purchase, foreshadowed in the Spotless interim results announcement on 19 February 2009, further expands the Spotless suite of specialised service offerings across Australia and New Zealand.

"Riley Shelley enables us to offer additional services to existing and potential clients, ultimately increasing client value.

"The acquisition delivers immediate benefits; bringing a significant client base, an experienced leadership team, a talented group of employees and an extensive network of contractors into the Spotless fold," said Farnik.

Spotless intends to maintain the Riley Shelley brand, which currently services more 500 clients across education, retail, health and commercial sectors.

The addition of Riley Shelley will further consolidate Spotless' position as a leading supplier of outsourced services - which currently span facilities management, asset maintenance, food services, cleaning services, laundry and retailer services (garment hangers and packaging).
