NEW YORK, May 11, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- ABM Industries Incorporated (NYSE:ABM), which through its subsidiaries is one of the leading facility services contractors in the United States, announced today that it has acquired certain assets controlled by Control Holding Group, Inc., including those of Control Building Services-Northeast Janitorial Services Division, Control Engineering Services, Inc., and TTF, Inc. The acquisition expands ABM's facility cleaning and engineering services offerings to clients in the Northeast and other markets.

The businesses associated with the acquired assets generate annual revenues of approximately $50 million by providing a range of facility maintenance and engineering services to commercial, retail, institutional and pharmaceutical clients - primarily in New Jersey and New York.

"This transaction allows us to continue to lead the New Jersey and New York markets in delivering high-quality facility services to an even broader base of commercial, institutional and pharmaceutical clients."

Richard Matero, president and chief operating officer, Control Holding Group, said: "When we reached the decision to sell these assets, it became very important for us to find an organization that shared our values and our commitment to customer service.
