Abby confirmed First Class Cleaning, which opened 10 years ago, will continue to trade under its current name and that all 25 full-time members of staff and 30 part-time have been retained.

A further five full-time jobs have also been created since they took over.

The Press & Journal reports that the acquisition is part of a nationwide growth strategy and aim to more than double turnover to £15million within two years.

Founder and group operations director, Robert May, said: “At Abby, we are strong in construction, new-build and property management.

“In Aberdeen, First Class Cleaning came to our attention and they provide a lot of work in the construction business, end of tenancy and holiday lets.

“It is a very well known company in the area and will, of course, in the future, continue to trade under its existing name in the Aberdeen area and retain its very important identity whilst being part of the overall Abby Group of companies.”
