Minister of State for Apprenticeships and Skills opens Cloudfm’s new premises


Cloudfm, one of the UK’s fastest-growing facilities management companies, has opened a new 5,000 sq ft hub at Mead Park Industrial Estate, Harlow, with local Conservative candidate and Minister of State for Apprenticeships and Skills Robert Halfon cutting the ribbon to mark the company’s expansion into the area.

Providing building maintenance services for large multi-site organisations, Cloudfm operates contracts across the restaurant, retail, and education sectors, amongst others. Its clients include well-known brands such as Prezzo, Pizza Express, KFC, Karen Millen and Wolseley.

The new location – the fifth Cloudfm site to be opened in as many years – is now the home of the company’s Shutters and Doors and Hire divisions, a 24/7 critical spares facility that helps the company deliver its market-leading reactive maintenance services, and a training centre for specialist engineers.

It will also become a regional office for functions including supply chain and account management, help desk, and compliance, as the company’s rapid growth continues to keep pace with its increasing list of clients.

As a result of this expansion, up to 30 new jobs are forecast to be created at this new Cloudfm site within the next 12 months, including a number of Apprenticeships.

“Our new hub at Harlow is a key part of our strategy for growth and excellence,” said Jeff Dewing, CEO at Cloudfm Group. “It’s an ideal location in terms of further improving the efficiency and speed of our UK-wide service coverage, plus it’s also a great place to be to attract the best new talent, thanks to the specialist educational centres in the area, which enable young people to focus on industry-relevant specialisms from the age of 14 onwards.”

Commenting on Cloudfm’s decision to locate their latest new hub in Harlow, Robert Halfon, Conservative candidate for Harlow and Minister of State for Apprenticeships and Skills, said: “I’m delighted to see that Harlow’s investment in industry-relevant education is bearing fruit, and attracting employers of Cloudfm’s calibre to the town. It’s heartening to know that students of the new Harlow Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering Centre, and also of Sir Charles Kao UTC – our science and engineering academy – will have opportunities to grow their careers locally, with companies that are leaders in their field.”
