Pureclean Car Care looks to accelerate growth after LPW Group deal

A County Durham commercial valeting business has been bought by a fellow market operator.

Pureclean Car Care Limited is now part of LPW Group.

Paul Iley, Pureclean founder, says the company will “accelerate” under vehicle cleaning firm LPW Group’s guidance.

Pureclean – which bosses say is the North East’s largest commercial valeting business – was supported by Abu Ali, of Newcastle-based Williams Ali Corporate Finance LLP, and Craig Hart, from Craig Hart Accountancy Services.

Paul said: “I am incredibly proud of Pureclean’s success since its formation 13 years ago and have no doubt this will continue and accelerate as we join the LPW Group.

“It was important to join a group with such ambitious growth plans, while maintaining a strong family culture at the heart of the business.

“I look forward to working with the LPW team to grow Pureclean and contribute to the group’s success.”

LPW Group’s deal for Pureclean – which works with dealerships and blue-chip brands – comes just a few months after it bought Wilson Contract Services.

With more than 45 years’ industry experience, officials say LPW Group is the UK market-leader in fleet cleaning and truck wash services, with its brands including LPW Truckwash, Mobile Fleetwash and Carlyle Bus and Coach.

Laurie Moon, chief executive, added: “We are delighted to welcome Paul and the Pureclean team into the group.

“Pureclean has an unrivalled reputation in the North East, which I am looking forward to see grow across the UK.

“Together, we are very excited to explore the opportunities allowed by our joint forces.”

Simon Lloydbottom and Oliver Wadlow, from Alinea Corporate Finance, also worked on the deal, as did Beswicks Legal’s Tom Sutcliffe.
