Amber Support Solutions, the Belfast-based industrial cleaning services provider, has become part of multiservice FM group Bidvest Noonan.

As part of this strategy, Bidvest Noonan has appointed Amber’s managing director Scott Brannigan to the role of managing director for Bidvest Noonan, Northern Ireland. The Amber business will continue to operate under the Amber brand within the group. Brannigan will take responsibility for growing Amber and Bidvest Noonan’s wider business in the region.
Amber was established in 2010 and the business has a strong portfolio of clients across the public, corporate, manufacturing, retail and commercial sectors. It is a specialist industrial cleaning company that offers services ranging from window to carpet cleaning.
The Bidvest Noonan, Northern Ireland business employs 1,500 people and is already one of the region’s largest FM companies, with a 44-year history. Across the island, Bidvest Noonan is the market leader for security and cleaning services and is well-established in mechanical and electrical engineering services. The group has a turnover in excess of £700 million and employs at least 27,000 people across its key markets.
