ABM UK Expands Significantly With Key Contract Wins

NEW YORK, Aug. 17, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ABM (NYSE:ABM), a leading provider of facility solutions, announced several key contract wins collectively totaling more than $100 million, or £75 million, of annualized revenue signifying the Company's growing business in the United Kingdom.

ABM UK was recently awarded a five-year contract for facilities services by Transport for London (TfL), the government organization responsible for London's transport system.  The agreement includes the cleaning of Tube stations, trains, bus depots, head office buildings and the London Transport Museum

Andy Donnell, ABM UK Group Managing Director, said, "ABM UK has a great track record of looking after some of London's most iconic sites, including City Hall, the O2 Arena, and Southbank.  The buses, trains and Tubes are a defining feature of daily life in London and we are proud and honored to be working alongside TfL.  We look forward to playing our part in helping to keep London moving, working and growing."

ABM's contract with TfL is one of six facilities management deals that have been consolidated from 50 as part of TfL's work to deliver the Mayor of London's plans to improve public transport while reducing day-to-day operating costs and delivering the best possible value.  This contract also includes a commitment to employ approximately 3,000 people.

Scott Salmirs, President and Chief Executive Officer of ABM Industries, commented, "Through the hard work and diligence of Andy and the entire ABM UK team, we are establishing ABM as a strong integrated facilities management company across the United Kingdom."

The TfL contract follows recent contract wins with Thomas More Square, the Belfry Shopping Centre and Wagamama restaurants, which further establishes ABM's presence throughout London. 

Beyond its work in greater London, ABM UK was also awarded a three-year contract to provide a range of facilities management services to the retail center, The Centre, Livingston in Scotland.  The contract, which is managed by the global real estate services provider, Savills, includes cleaning, security, customer service, and facilities management.
