01 November 2022

City West Support Services, the London-based cleaning company, is to be acquired by Atlas FM.

Atlas FM, which purchased Salisbury Group in March 2022, is looking to expand its total facilities management offering across Greater London.


Delivering Total Facilities Management Services Across London


City West supports some of the capital’s best-known buildings and organisations, such as the British Medical Association’s BMA House in Tavistock Square, Bloomsbury. The company also trains its cleaners via its own in-house academy and accredited British Institute of Cleaning Science Assessment Centre. All employees are paid the Living Wage, and the business is certified by Planet Mark for its approach to sustainability.

Atlas is looking to build building a single service and total facilities management offering that can appeal to prestigious clients who require high-quality cleaning, security, engineering and related facilities services.

Chris Wisely, Group Managing Director of Atlas FM, said: “We are delighted to bring City West Support Services into the Atlas family. It is an exciting deal not only because City West delivers a high level of service quality, but also the fantastic clients it works with across Greater London. We have a strong cultural alignment and a consistent ambition for the future – to become a leading provider of high-quality facilities services across the capital.”

City West’s Managing Director, Martin Fitch added: “I am very proud of City West’s reputation for service excellence and personal attention to our customers’ needs. We are very pleased to be joining the Atlas family, where we will benefit from the additional opportunities that come from being part of a larger group of companies, supporting our continued growth.”
