Parr FM invests over £500k to grow business with new Scottish base

Parr Facilities Management has launched a Scotland base and established a Glasgow-based team in line with its national growth strategy.

The move represents an investment of over £500,000 for the business. It will also see the creation of 15 new jobs at the Scotland site and that figure will grow to over 70 new jobs in the coming months across all bases which include its headquarters in Belfast and offices in Greater Manchester and Dublin.

The business, which was set up in 2007, works on a national level providing facilities management services across the healthcare, retail and hospitality sectors. Its clients include the NHS, Co-op, Lidl, Whitbread, Boots, Lush, Home Bargains and Asda.

Parr FM’s expansion will support the latter retailer’s growth plans across the UK, as well as supporting its other clients’ needs. It will also support its growing contract wins which span much of the UK, including Scotland.

The company’s main role is to provide reactive and planned maintenance services to companies across the UK and Ireland as well as refurbishments and building fit outs. Other services include mechanical and electrical compliance, fabric building services, fire services and civils works.

Speaking about Parr FM’s new Scottish base, Jim Friel, Operations Manager Scotland, said: “Parr FM’s expansion into Scotland represents an economic boost for the country and brings an invaluable service to our growing customer base here; one which we can access even easier thanks to our new geographical setup.

“We’re delighted to make a bigger mark on the Scottish facilities landscape and look forward to welcoming more customers to our business.”

Stephen Parr, Managing Director of Parr FM commented: “Our expansion into Scotland was a calculated move, one which responds to the demand from our clients based there and one which is part of a wider strategy to accommodate our clients no matter where they are based.

“It’s a natural step for us and brings us even closer to those customers we have already been servicing for a number of years, but also closer to new customers seeking a reliable facilities management service with a strong reputation. We are delighted to welcome the new team to the Parr FM family and look forward to growing that headcount.”
