A new FM company has been created for the UK market with the aim of changing the way corporate clients benefit from outsourced services.
The company, called, Q3, is the brainchild of senior figures from the FM sector, including Martyn Freeman, Stuart Bellew, and Alex Gavrilovic.
According to its founders, the company has three main objectives - "to help make commercial clients more productive through healthier environments, to work in a more transparent and open-book manner and to transform the working environment for Q3 employees with well-paid and long-term jobs".
Martyn Freeman, CEO, says that Q3 will initially focus on cleaning, mechanical and electrical, waste and environmental, pest control and landscaping, and is ready to take advantage of clients' frustrations with the state of play in the UK market.
Bellew, managing director of the new company, said: "Because we are not tied to a PLC or a large overseas-owned business we can invest our time and money on growing in a sustainable manner that puts clients' needs and our own employees first. We are committed to a highly entrepreneurial methodology and are confident that our investment will help the UK economy. We are also looking to work with clients that support the raising of living standards for all people in work and we will stress this in all negotiations."
Alex Gavrilovic, Q3's solutions director, said that they were investing in "transparent technology that adds real value to client relationships".
