Surrey-based Cleankill Pest Control has reached the finals of a prestigious national competition run by the professional body for facilities managers.
Cleankill was shortlisted along with four other companies in the FM Service Provider of the Year (SME) category of the British Institute of Facilities Management (BIFM) Awards 2014.
It is the first time Cleankill has entered the awards and staff and the Croydon-based company are thrilled to have reached the last stage of the competition.
Managing Director Paul Bates said: “We’ve won several awards in the past but this has to be one of the most prestigious ones we have ever been shortlisted for. What makes it particularly special and important is the fact that most of our customers are facilities managers and getting shortlisted reinforces the excellent work we do within this sector.”
The awards, with headline sponsor Macro, recognise excellence and celebrate great facilities management (FM) through inspirational projects, teams and individuals.
"The BIFM Awards showcase the FM industry at its very best,” says BIFM’s Chair of Judges, Steve Gladwin. “This year’s entries are no exception with strong competition across all categories. There are some truly inspiring projects here with so much for people working in the profession to be proud of. Our finalists demonstrate the increasing influence and impact of facilities management to business, the economy and society as a whole.”
The Cleankill team will now attend an awards ceremony on 13 October in London to hear whether they have won.
