Diamond Facilities Support Group has achieved its ninth consecutive year of growth in turnover.

 

The firm, which is based on Birmingham Business Park, generated £9.5 million of turnover in the 2018/9 financial year – a £1 million increase on the previous year.

 

It follows a year that has seen the firm launch three businesses to form the Diamond Facilities Support Group in a bid to provide more than 90 per cent of services from in-house personnel, creating 60 new jobs currently, with plans for further growth.

 

These include fire and security maintenance and compliance through Sanctuary Fire & Security Limited; commercial cleaning, pest control and grounds maintenance through Nationwide Property Clean, and specialist drainage solutions via Jet Through Limited.

 

The Group has landed more than a dozen contracts this year with high-profile names such as Ryder, Mitchell & Butlers, Yates and AFI taking the Group’s client base into the mid-30s.

 

Adam Atkins, joint managing director of the Diamond Facilities Support Group, said: “We have bold and achievable ambitions for the Group to be more than doubling its turnover by 2022, which will be expedited by the formation of the new businesses.

 

“Over the years we have built up solid foundations with Diamond Facilities Support as a single entity offering a range of facilities management services, which in turn has allowed us to identify key growth areas and set up dedicated businesses to service these markets.”

 

Helen Cooper, joint managing director of the Diamond Facilities Support Group added: “Creating an infrastructure where we can offer the majority of our services in-house with a 170+ strong workforce is vital for our long-term growth, because a consistently high level of service will increase the number of referrals that we are receiving and ensure client retention.

 

“The three new businesses are approaching nearly £1million each to the Group’s overall annual turnover which is really encouraging as we look to grow these three brands across the UK over the next year alongside Diamond Facilities Support.”
