With increasing business and financial pressures, industries across Asia now see the importance of maintaining its plants, machinery and building assets. As companies focus on core business and improvement on thin operating margins, integrated facilities management is gaining prominence against a backdrop of emerging trends such as privatizations, the REIT markets, corporate restructuring, outsourcing practices, cost savings, emphasis on green platforms, etc.
As building and facility owners realize the benefits of preventive maintenance instead of the traditional “use and replace” policies, there are growing interests in preventive maintenance solutions and building asset management solutions through integrated facilities management and outsourcing of non-core activities ranging from housekeeping, food services, engineering work, and energy management to an array of other soft services.
