“The Facility Management market is flying high. In recent years we have seen a lot of investment, partly driven by a growing demand for modern, energy-efficient but also easily accessible buildings.
With COVID-19, there will now be even more thought given to the use of office spaces, which will also have to fulfil other functions, such as becoming meeting places, for example. In reality, organisations are already rethinking the way they view work, meaning that buildings will also be transformed. The equipment market will play a major role in achieving this transition. We want to respond to this in a meaningful way with our Building Services activities”, states Jan Feijen.
