Europa launches new look and new direction

14 July 2008

Five months on from its acquisition of United Utilities FM, Europa has unveiled its business strategy and a new identity .

Europa will be delivering an integrated FM service across four markets – corporate, public, retail and utilities – focussing on providing a full package of services to blue chip clients right across the country. It will build on our core expertise in the corporate sector working alongside companies such as BNP Paribas and CBRE, whilst capitalising on its experience with organisations like Capital Shopping Centres and in some of the UK’s landmark destinations in the retail industry. In the public sector Europa will seek to offer an integrated service solution to local authorities and in the utility market it will develop relationships with United Utilities and clients such as Northern Gas and Welsh Water.

The shape of the business has changed since the acquisition, with two business streams working side by side and with turnover approaching £60m. As well as its base in Hertfordshire, Europa has offices in Manchester, Newcastle, Dorking and Birmingham with sites ranging from Bristol and Brighton in the south to Newcastle and Aberdeen in the north.

Martin Jones, Group Chief Executive, said: “With our restructure and change of strategy Europa is effectively a new business. Today, we have revealed a new identity, new web site and corporate literature to reflect the fresh approach and new direction the business will be taking. We have a cleaner, more dynamic feel to the business and an image that represents our straightforward and intelligent approach to FM. It is a very exciting time for the whole company and we are in a position to grow and fulfil our corporate objectives. There is a real momentum about the organisation. Business leads to the tune of over £60m are in the pipeline; thousands of hours of training are being invested in personnel and new offices are being opened.

“As the UK’s new face in the FM market we really want to make an impression. We have the skills, the resources, the desire and the customer focussed attitude to make a major impact on the market place across all of our target sectors. I am confident that we will move from strength to strength in the next twelve months,” said Martin Jones.

Europa is a privately owned, leading facilities management business, operating right across the UK. It employs nearly 2,000 FM professionals with its head office in Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire. Europa delivers integrated FM services across four markets – corporate, public, retail and utilities providing a bespoke or a total package as required. For further information visit
