Diamond continues expansion with another client win

18 October 18

Diamond Facilities Support is charging ahead with its expansion plans after striking a deal to service a national powered access company.


The firm is working with AFI-Uplift to maintain their 21 depots across the UK, ranging from Glasgow to Exeter.


The deal is worth seven figures over three-years, and will see Birmingham based Diamond Facilities Support delivering services such as reactive works, mechanical and electrical compliance, fire and security, drainage works and quoted works.


AFI-Uplift will also have access to their own web portal management system to manage the maintenance of each building, complete with access to a 24 hour helpdesk.


Diamond have continued their expansion through 2018 – and will see another year-on-year increase of over 10 per cent in turnover.


Adam Atkins, joint managing director of Diamond Facilities Support, said: “AFI-Uplift has fantastic geographical spread across the country, so this deal is a real coup for us in terms of raising awareness and developing our company further.


“It is especially pleasing to see us winning work by simply approaching them with what we can offer – it became apparent very quickly that they wanted a direct maintenance supplier, which, thanks to our own direct workforce plus our drainage and fire and security businesses, we are able to offer 90 per cent of all work with in-house labour – which is unique within our sector.


“Providing a variety of services in-house is just one part of our focus on service and convenience, as we are also in the process of investing in innovative ways that our clients can engage with us when they need FM assistance.”

Diamond Facilities Support has struck a seven figure, three-year deal to work for one of the UK’s leading pub, bar and restaurant operators.


The business has won a competitive mechanical and electrical maintenance (M&E) tender process to maintain 100 of Mitchells & Butlers’ Midlands-based pubs and restaurants, which include brands such as Miller & Carter, Harvester, Toby Carvery and All Bar One.


The service will see Diamond Facilities Support, along with subsidiary companies Jet Through and Sanctuary Fire & Security, providing a combination of mechanical and electrical compliance, quoted and reactive works.


Adam Atkins, joint managing director at Diamond Facilities Support, said: “We’re extremely proud to add one of the UK’s best-known restaurant, pub and bar brands to strengthen our leisure portfolio.


“Our extensive experience of servicing some of the UK’s best known leisure brands combined with 90 per cent of our services being delivered in-house is helping to make us stand out from the crowd.”


“To come out on top of a competitive tender process for what is a long-term partnership makes this especially rewarding.


Helen Cooper, joint managing director at Diamond Facilities Support, added: “Establishing long-term working relationships with big organisations such as Mitchells & Butlers is key to all of our business’ future growth plans – providing a healthy stream of revenue while also securing word-of-mouth referrals.”


Diamond Facilities Support was formed in 2010, employs over 130 staff and has more than 30 clients with an annual turnover of £9.5 million.
