New name means new growth for Novus
Novus – the Latin word for ‘new’ – is the new name of national property maintenance specialist Seddon Property Services. Chairman Stuart Seddon is predicting new growth and new jobs at the rebranded company which employs 1,000 people and delivers property services from more than 30 offices across the UK.
The name change follows a reorganisation of the ownership of its parent company Seddon Group.
This has established Novus – which is led by Stuart Seddon and his family – as an independent trading business.
The company will continue to draw on its strong heritage whilst also benefitting from the added freedom that comes with being an independent trading organisation. It is now able to provide a wider range of specialised property services for clients and customers.
“We’re excited about this move and the opportunities for growth it brings to our national property services business which is supported by a strong balance sheet, an extensive geographical presence across the UK and significant sector expertise,” says Stuart Seddon of Novus.
“The Novus name gives us a strong identity in the marketplace and reflects our commitment to delivering fresh, innovative and forward-thinking solutions for our clients. This move is all about growth – we are not planning any redundancies as a result of this change – and we anticipate it will create new employment opportunities.”
