Diamond Facilities Support (DFS) has been listed as one of the fastest growing facilities management companies by an industry report.

DFS has made it into the top 50 of the Plimsoll Report’s facilities management survey, which covers over 420 different companies in the sector.

The Plimsoll Report is conducted by experts who analyse the finances of companies across 1600 industries and sectors.

In the 12 months to December 2015 DFS’ total sales increased by 61 per cent, well above the industry average of 4.9 per cent.

It comes after the firm, which formed in February 2010, has secured a clutch of contracts over the past year with the likes of TGI Fridays, Loungers, Swinton Insurance and Orchard Care Homes.

Since forming, DFS has also won the services of retail giants such as The Range and JD Sports, and now employs 118 staff.

Adam Atkins, joint managing director at DFS, said: “This is fantastic recognition of how we have grown in such a short space of time, and it’s great to know that we are now mixing with some of the biggest companies in our sector.

“We have grown our turnover significantly every single year since we started and are generating new business all of the time, and expect to achieve in excess of £8million turnover by the end of this year.  This equates to further growth of 45 per cent from 2015.

“Our growth has been down to the wide variety of services we can offer to other businesses – this includes a reactive response service through to cleaning contracts and building compliance.

“Competition in our industry is fierce and it’s all about responsiveness and high standards of service which is why we retain existing clients and win new business via referrals, so to be one of the leaders in our own sector bodes very well for the future.”
