ABM rebrands GBM Support Services Group

ABM, provider of facility solutions, has announced the rebranding of GBM Support Services Group Ltd and its Eclipse and CGS businesses under the ABM brand. GBM has been a leading provider of cleaning, security, building maintenance, waste and facilities management services for various retail, leisure, public sector, and commercial clients throughout the UK.

“As ABM continues to solidify its footprint throughout the UK, now is the right time to fully integrate the GBM brand and its businesses into the ABM family,” said Scott Salmirs, ABM CEO and president. “ABM's business in the UK is more diversified than ever. Through GBM's service offerings we have been able to expand and gain a stronger foothold in a number of ABM's strategic industries. ABM is excited to deliver industry-specific facility solutions that are tailored to the unique needs of our UK clients.”

With headquarters in London and a regional HQ office in Glasgow, GBM generated annual revenues of approximately £40 million in fiscal year 2014 and currently employs more than 3000 service professionals across the UK. John Spencer, who was recently appointed managing director for GBM Support Services Group, will lead ABM's UK business. He said: “This is a proud day. We're thrilled to align ourselves with one company name and logo. ABM has made significant investments in growing its businesses throughout the UK and has the depth of capital to ensure that our business can compete at the highest levels in the marketplace. Our clients and employees can rest assured in the knowledge that ABM is committed to its UK presence and expanding on what GBM has already built. Our scope of services and expertise will only benefit going forward.”

Through its combined UK business, ABM now services over 200 commercial office locations, approximately 50 centres and retail parks, 15 airports, and approximately 1 million square feet of public and entertainment venue space. In all, ABM now services over 370 client locations throughout the UK.
