It is a strategic starting point for the Facilicom Group that all its companies pursue a top position in the market. It has emerged that this is not realistic in the large French market. For this reason it has been decided to transfer the companies, with a joint turnover of approx € 70 million and more than 3,000 employees, to a strong French operator: ATALIAN.
ATALIAN is a French company with facility service operations in 30 countries and a turnover approaching 2 billion. ATALIAN has 95,000 employees in service. It integrates the companies in its existing organisation.
With this strategic step we offer our French companies and their employees a better future. It is never easy to take leave of business units, especially when they have been part of the group for so long. But now we can focus even better on the facility markets in the Benelux and the United Kingdom where we still see many opportunities, as well as on the Dutch market.
