Taylor Made Franchising acquires Chemex International

Taylor Made Franchising acquires Chemex International

The acquisition will bring the annual network turnover to £32m with approximately 100 franchisees across 10 brands

Taylor Made Franchising has added it to its existing nine franchise brands after acquiring Chemex International.

Chemex International is a hygiene specialist, providing a range of products and services to markets including hotels, restaurants, pubs, care homes, ambulance organisations and food manufacturers. The company was founded in 1985 and currently has 27 UK-based franchisees and three international licensees in Denmark, Ireland and Cyprus. 

It was owned by Michael Graham, Omer Farooqui and Melvin Lusty. “During the pandemic, as a noted supplier of hygiene products, we were chased by many companies purely interested in our turnover, but they didn’t want to know about the franchise system,” said Michael. “With 30 years’ personal experience in franchising, any potential acquirer had to confirm that this well-proven business mechanism would continue under the Chemex brand. 

“We knew if we sold to Darren both the staff and the franchise network would be protected. We know that he and his team will bring new energy to the business that will help it move forwards and take it to the next level.”

Darren Taylor (pictured), the managing director of Taylor Made Franchising, has confirmed that Chemex International is his company’s largest acquisition to date and is a good fit with the rest of the van-based franchises.

He said: “We are building a strong ecosystem here at Taylor Made Franchising, with brands serving each other with relevant products and skills. Thomas Cleaning and PVC Vendo will now use Chemex products across their networks for cleaning homes, offices and vehicles.

“I’d like to welcome the staff and franchisees to Taylor Made Franchising, things at Chemex will be ‘business as usual’ and my team and I look forward to meeting them soon.”

The portfolio of Taylor Made Franchising also includes StumpBusters, PVC Vendo, Wilkins Chimney Sweep, Thomas Cleaning Franchise, Iconic Window Cleaning, Mister Tacho, Broadway Wine, Women In Business Network (WIBN) and Wagging Tails.
