Diamond deals



A Midlands facilities services company is on course for another record year of turnover after securing a clutch of long-term, six-figure deals nationwide.


Diamond Facilities Support (DFS), based in Coleshill, has signed a two-year deal with Swinton Insurance to maintain around 200 of its branches nationwide, creating a handful of field-based jobs in the process.


Over the two years, DFS will provide a 24-hour reactive helpdesk, along with compliance such as gas servicing, electrical testing and emergency lighting.


It comes after an additional three-year, six-figure contract was also secured with care provider HFT and then a clutch of other contracts with Orchard Care Homes and Lighthouse Health Care. All providing a 24-hour reactive helpdesk, reactive maintenance and quoted works nationwide.


The news is encouraging for DFS which is aiming to top last year’s record turnover of £5.7 million by reaching the £8 million mark in 2016.


These deals are the latest coup for the Midlands firm which has attracted other big companies such as The Range and JD Sports, creating over 100 jobs since its inception in 2010.


Adam Atkins, managing director at Diamond Facilities Support, said: “We’re delighted to be able to secure these contracts to add to our growing client base.


“We are now approaching 30 clients spread across so many different sectors – from gymnasiums and restaurants to care homes and retailers – so it’s fantastic that we have been able to branch into the insurance sector for the first time.


“The addition of Orchard Care Homes and Lighthouse Health Care also consolidates our presence in the care home sector, as we already provide services to the likes of HFT and Octopus Healthcare.


“Our growth can largely be put down to the tailored, responsive service that we provide to suit each business. Our services are broken down into six divisions so clients are able to identify the specific ones that work for them or alternatively take our fully integrated service.


“Whether it is simply reactive works, or managing our clients’ whole supply chain, ensuring they are getting value for money is our top priority.


“This is an extremely exciting period for the business as we expect this growth to continue over the coming months with existing customers and deals with other national companies.”
