Spotted Cow Media Launches Business Directory to Aid Supplier Selection

ThisWeekinFM Launches Business Directory
24 March 2021

A new comprehensive list of suppliers offering services for facilities and workplace managers launches today.

The Directory of Suppliers to the Facilities and Workplace Management Industry brings together businesses that offer products and services that are relevant for FM and workplace management professionals. It is managed by Spotted Cow Media, which is the media organisation that publishes ThisWeekinFM.

You can discover businesses that match your requirements across a range of categories. It’s easy to search by location or service category, and more suppliers are being added every day.

Browse by category or region within the directory to find the product or service that you require.




The facilities management sector as a whole is estimated is being worth as much as £120 billion in the UK alone, and the procurement process can be a delicate balancing act. Managing low margins, service provision and social value means finding suitable suppliers is an ongoing challenge for those in the industry.

The directory is aimed at professionals working in the public and private sector property, who manage the facilities management procurement process, including directors of estates, heads of FM, property managers and consultants.

Laurence Allen, CEO of Spotted Cow Media commented: “My contacts have informed me for some time about the need for a comprehensive supplier directory that gives clarity about services provided, enabling a smoother procurement process. 

“We are excited about the launch of our business directory and hope it will support the sector in achieving best practice.”

ThisWeekinFM is a leading digital publication for decision-makers and influencers responsible for creating, upgrading and sustaining facilities, property and the workplace as well as the broader built environment. With a significant database of property owners and occupiers, budget holders and decision-makers, the online news service is uniquely placed to offer a directory of this type.
