How the Facilities Management sector is facing up to the recession

Saturday, 7 August 2010


Twelve months ago we compiled an Index evaluating 50 of the leading FM businesses in the UK, aiming to spark some debate, particularly as FM is rarely seen as a coherent industry – even by many participants.  

Our view is that there are more similarities than differences between Soft FM, M&E and the other sectors, and that examining the strategies and performance of a wide set of business can be instructive about which of them are likely to be the long-term winners.

We are updating the analysis now in order to take stock of the industry and to see what differences are emerging between the largest players. Specifically, we have used some financial analysis based on published accounts as a starting point for some investigation of the trends likely to define the market over the next 2-3 years.
