Sodexo acquires Morris Corp

PRESS RELEASE: Morris Corp currently provides catering, facilities management and maintenance services for major mining and oil & gas firms in Australia. Morris’ presence in the eastern area of the country complements Sodexo’s existing footprint in the country’s western region. This acquisition will significantly expand Sodexo’s market share in Australia, reinforcing its high position in the mining sector, and building on its track record as a provider of industry-leading integrated facilities management services.

Following the acquisition, the current management team of Morris and its 1,200 employees will transfer to Sodexo.

Michel Landel, CEO of Sodexo, said: “Both Sodexo and Morris were founded in 1966 as family-owned catering firms. We share similar values including a commitment to indigenous communities, and a focus on developing sustainable local businesses wherever we operate. We look forward to working together to improve quality of life for our clients and consumers as we develop exciting new business opportunities in Australia”.

Fiona Berkin, CEO of Morris Corp, said: "We are delighted at the opportunity this presents, for growth and further value creation. Our shared values and focus on safety are a big part of why this deal makes sense and will be a success, delivering benefits to our clients and consumers and increased opportunities across our combined workforces."
