“2017 has been a great year for Macro. Our numbers are now stronger than ever, with turnover increasing by 28% to £120m. Over the last five years we have seen fantastic organic growth, thanks to the expansion of our client portfolio and our focus on delivering an innovative and superior workplace experience.
“Mace’s 2022 Business Strategy will ensure that Macro continues to develop the business in this way and will secure our position within the market as a leading outsourced facilities management provider. Credit must go to all the individuals who continue to drive and develop the business, and who strive to make the most of every opportunity that comes their way.”
A number of key contract wins have bolstered Macro’s international growth, increasing the locations in which the business delivers facilities management services to more than 40 countries, working across a huge range of different sectors and clients.
Mace, Macro’s parent company, saw profits more than double to £23m, with a £50m investment in research and development, with turnover remaining broadly constant at £1.97bn.
