Global FM service provider created by merger

18 May 2018

Completion of a joint venture in 2016 between FM service providers Atalian and Servest has led to the two businesses merging, it was announced yesterday.

No financial details of the deal have been revealed, as yet, and the new organisation will be known as Atalian Servest.

Combining the two companies has created a business with a turnover of around euro 3bn, with more than 125,000 employees operating in 33 countries across four continents.

Atalian operations are established across Europe, the US, south-east Asia and Africa, with the independent business run from its French headquarters and providing a TFM service.

According to yesterday's statement, the two business have a number of complementary factors, including the provision of customised FM services to a number of sectors.

The PFM Editorial Advisory Board has previously stated how difficult it is to find international FM service providers, which the merger will go some way to addressing as both companies have experience in dealing with cultural nuances in different local environments.

Services will therefore be provided on a local, national or international level by the newly-formed company, depending on the needs of clients.

Investment and partnership with ICT specialist Getronics was also included in the announcement, providing the scope to further develop technology-led workspace solutions.

The Atalian Servest executive management team will consist of Atalian chairman Franck Julien and group chief executive officer and Kenton Fine in the role of vice chairman, with Rob Legge becoming chairman UK and USA.
