HARTFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Safety-Kleen Systems, Inc. has selected FM Facility Maintenance to handle facility maintenance for its more than 200 corporate-owned locations in both the US and Canada. The agreement allows Safety-Kleen to centralize maintenance activity in order for facilities to operate more efficiently and receive top-quality service, while reducing costs.
“In today’s highly competitive business environment, being able to simultaneously reduce costs, improve maintenance and allow our employees to focus even greater attention on customer service, rather than maintenance issues, almost sounds too good to be true,” said Dave Eckelbarger, Safety-Kleen executive vice president for supply chain. “But we believe that is exactly what our contract with FM will do, so we see this as a sound business opportunity that can help increase the bottom line.”
FM will be responsible for Safety-Kleen’s maintenance operations, including conveying equipment, HVAC, fire protection, plumbing & electrical services, and repair of specialty access equipment such as overhead doors and security gates. Additionally, FM’s tracking and reporting will identify opportunities for continuous operational and financial improvement
“FM shares the same commitment to excellence and customer service as Safety-Kleen, and it is precisely these shared values that will drive our relationship,” said Jim Reavey, FM president and CEO. “Over the years we have refined and upgraded our processes and procedures, doing so has allowed us to offer a world-class suite of services customized to fit our customer’s needs. Our team is very excited about the opportunity to work with Safety-Kleen.”
