The new division, Cofely International FM Ltd, will become the single point of contact for existing global, multinational and regional Total Facilities Management (TFM) customers, as well as co-ordinating all activities relating to new multinational business opportunities and will operate from bases throughout EMEA, Asia Pacific, North America and Latin America.
GDF SUEZ Energy Services’ international FM director Juergen Kulka, will head up the division. Kulka, who is the former head of Service Management International (SMI), has over 15 years’ experience in the development of international FM solutions and is one of the pioneers of regional or global TFM portfolio deals. He commented:
“This move is part of our evolving strategy to meet the needs of international customers and allows Cofely to execute integrated facility services management solutions with competence in a market that is clearly waiting for a player with a heritage in technical expertise. We will build on this outstanding capability in delivering technical services to develop stronger fully integrated facility service solutions to our customers.”
Cofely which has the capability to deliver Total FM solutions in over 30 countries, already has a sizeable portfolio of major multinational FM clients with total revenue of around €1bn. The new international FM business is designed to harness these national strengths to deliver seamless, consistent multinational TFM service alongside the company’s energy efficiency and energy management capabilities.
