Roger Oliver, former owner of The London Linen Group, felt the time was right to sell the market leader in London’s catering and restaurant market. He is confident the joining of our two companies will maintain the excellent growth achieved over the past years. He believes there are good opportunities in the markets the company serves and that the management team is strong and capable of ensuring the careful development of the business into the foreseeable future.
Johnson Service Group is looking to develop the group even further, recognising its core strengths for further future growth.
Within The Caterers Linen Supply, it is definitely ‘business as usual’ – the branding, employees and location will remain the same. Customers will see no difference in operations; the day to day running of the business will be unchanged. Clients can expect the same high quality linen hire and laundry, accompanied by excellent customer service.
The London Linen Group and Johnson Service Group have similar family ethos. The group will continue to focus on servicing the restaurant, casual dining and contract catering markets and be a significant contributor to the Johnson Service Group. This is a wonderful opportunity to carry on moving the group forward, growing as we have done over the past 80 years. We are looking forward to a strong exciting future dedicated to serving our dynamic customers.
