Incorporated in 2008, CLR Facility provides integrated facility management and staffing solutions. It employs more than 15,000 people across 15 states, according to the statement.

CLR Facility is backed by IndiaNivesh Fund. The homegrown investment firm had picked up a minority stake in CLR for an undisclosed amount in January.
