ABM… Building Value for your buildings, facilities and business.
ABM’s Professionalism and Work Ethic and What it Means to You
Clients who have been with us for decades will tell you that we have a service-focused mentality. ABM’s work ethic centers on:
- A needs-based approach. Clients come to us for lasting and reliable facility management solutions. They know we understand their everyday demands and real estate strategy. We provide a needs-based approach to delivering services. We’re proud of our expertise, but have built our business on listening to our clients.
- Our company values. Our relationship with you will be built on respect, integrity and collaboration. We seek innovation and are dedicated to excellence. It’s something not open to compromise. Every employee at ABM knows this and puts it into action at every job site.
- Innovation. We make every effort to not only lead, but to transform the industry through our knowledge, integrity, professionalism and technology, so that we can expertly handle anything you ask of us.
- Value-added relationships. We conduct business in a way that instills a sense of confidence in our clients. It’s something that reaches beyond ABM’s service competence; it’s a sense of security. You’ll know you chose wisely when you choose ABM.
Not just a philosophy. It’s how we do business.
ABM will never go into a bidding war if it means selling out on our values. You may find a cheaper, short-term solution from one of our competitors, but in the long run, “cheap” and “short-term” can cost more money than doing it the RIGHT way. We don’t believe in shortcuts when it comes to safety, proper procedure, compliance and environmental concerns.
Respecting our employees
We employ over 100,000 skilled and hardworking people. We have nothing but the greatest respect for them. ABM meets and exceeds legal, union and staff demands for safe working conditions and career mobility. ABM treats everyone justly and fairly. When employees are happy, we know they’ll do their best for our clients.
Strong financials mean the ability to offer you more.
Our 2014 revenues of approximately $5.0 billion was earned by faithfully serving thousands of commercial, industrial, institutional and retail facilities in hundreds of cities. ABM is one of the largest facility solutions providers on the New York Stock Exchange. Our subsidiaries are leaders in their respective fields and are capable of organic and acquisition growth. Our size, operational infrastructure and financial strength enable us to offer clients a level of sophistication that translates into savings and peace of mind.
Facility solutions are often viewed as a commodity… something to bid out, with the lowest bidder winning. However, after working with ABM, our clients now view us as a valuable partner in their businesses.
From our humble beginnings as a window washing business in 1909 to every relationship we have today – from our facility managers, janitors, maintenance technicians, security guards, landscapers, parking attendants and other service workers to our largest clients – we consistently uphold our philosophy of doing things right.
