ABM Industries Incorporated is one of the largest facility services contractors listed on the New York Stock Exchange. ABM provides janitorial, parking, engineering, security, lighting and mechanical services for thousands of commercial, industrial, institutional, and retail facilities in hundreds of cities across the United States and British Columbia, Canada. The ABM Family of Services includes ABM Janitorial; Ampco System Parking; ABM Security Services; ABM Facility Services; ABM Engineering; and Amtech Lighting.
Founded in 1909 as a one-man window washing business, ABM has grown to become a leader in outsourced facility maintenance and operations services in the United States. This stature is based on the number of ABM employees, the range of services they perform, and geographical infrastructure in maintenance and operations.
Of particular interest to both potential customers and investors is ABM's ability to provide multiple services through their many companies. Most of the individual companies that make up ABM are among the leaders in their respective fields and are capable of both independent growth as well as growth through acquisitions. In addition, ABM spurs growth in other ways:
* ABM Family of Services - service bundling under individual contracts, and
* ABM Facility Services - integrated services under a single, comprehensive service management contract.
These capabilities, combined with a national operational infrastructure and ABM's formidable financial strength, position the company to service customers on a local, regional or national basis.
