HARTFORD, CT — Safety-Kleen Systems Inc. has selected FM Facility Maintenance to handle facility maintenance for its more than 200 corporate-owned locations in both the U.S. and Canada, according to a press release.
The agreement allows Safety-Kleen to centralize maintenance activity in order for facilities to operate more efficiently and receive top-quality service, while reducing costs, the release noted.
"In today''s highly competitive business environment, being able to simultaneously reduce costs, improve maintenance and allow our employees to focus even greater attention on customer service, rather than maintenance issues, almost sounds too good to be true," said Dave Eckelbarger, Safety-Kleen executive vice president for supply chain.
"But we believe that is exactly what our contract with FM will do, so we see this as a sound business opportunity that can help increase the bottom line," Eckelbarger added.
According to the release, FM will be responsible for Safety-Kleen''s maintenance operations, including conveying equipment, heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, fire protection, plumbing and electrical services and repair of specialty access equipment such as overhead doors and security gates.
