Parrs Facilities Management opens first Scottish office following £500,000 investment



Parr Facilities Management has opened its first Scottish office in Glasgow following a £500,000 investment to help grow the business.

The move will see the creation of 15 new jobs growing the company’s recruitment figure to more than 70 news jobs across all its bases in Manchester, Dublin and its headquarters in Belfast.

The business, which was set up in 2007, works on a national level providing facilities management services to a range of clients across the healthcare, retail and hospitality sectors.

Parr FM’s expansion will support the latter retailer’s growth plans across the UK, as well as supporting its other clients’ needs. It will also support its growing contract wins which span much of the UK, including Scotland.

It provides reactive and planned maintenance services to companies across the UK and Ireland as well as refurbishments and building fit outs.

Other services include mechanical and electrical compliance, fabric building services, fire services and civil works.

Jim Friel, operations manager Scotland, said: “Parr FM’s expansion into Scotland represents an economic boost for the country and brings an invaluable service to our growing customer base here; one which we can access even easier thanks to our new geographical setup.”

“We’re delighted to make a bigger mark on the Scottish facilities landscape and look forward to welcoming more customers to our business,” added Jim.

Stephen Parr, managing director at Parr FM said: “Our expansion into Scotland was a calculated move, one which responds to the demand from our clients based there and one which is part of a wider strategy to accommodate our clients no matter where they are based.”

“It’s a natural step for us and brings us even closer to those customers we have already been servicing for a number of years, but also closer to new customers seeking a reliable facilities management service with a strong reputation.”
