Emerald Isle Adds to Pot of Gold

07 January 2016 | Updated 01 January 1970

Soft services and contract cleaning specialist Facilicom has opened a brand new business in Ireland, extending the company’s presence across Europe.

The development comes after Facilicom won a contract with an American multinational technology company covering cleaning services at its offices in Dublin, London and Paris.

The company already has responsibility for cleaning at several sites in Ireland as part of larger contracts but had previously made arrangements with sub-contractors to carry them out.

“The new business is part of the wider Facilicom group but very much focused on developing business in Ireland,” explained Jan-Hein Hemke, MD, Facilicom UK. “It is not a satellite office for Facilicom UK and it has its own company registration, employing local people. We’re very happy to be moving into this new market place.”

The Facilicom Services Group already employs over 30,000 people in the Netherlands, Belgium, France and the UK and has an annual turnover of a pot of gold - or £1 billion to you and I.
