POLAND Apleona takes over FM Solutions

Property and Facility Management
German facility management specialist Apleona has acquired Polish counterpart FM Solutions. The terms of the deal have not been disclosed.

Founded in 2014, Kraków-based FM Solutions now provides technical maintenance, repairs and installation services – including HVAC, fire and security and BMS – across key southern regions of Poland, with a presence in Kraków, Katowice and Wrocław. It now employs over 300 staff, including 200 qualified technical specialists and 40 specialist service mobile engineers, while managing commercial properties with a total area of more than 1.8 mln sqm.

FM Solutions optimally rounds out our regional coverage and thus strengthens our market position as an integrated FM services provider throughout Poland. With its focus on technical services and its experience in managing properties of large international clients, FM Solutions fits seamlessly into our core business and ideally complements the Apleona business model. In particular, we can now better serve customers who demand integrated FM services from a single source and, especially, technical services can be provided in-house across Poland.
Jochen Keysberg, the CEO of Apleona

Apleona, which has been active in Poland for more than 20 years, now has around 700 employees in the country. It was itself acquired by Swedish-based investment company EQT in late 2020.
