In an extraordinary triumph, ASH Integrated Services Ltd, a modest yet dynamic engineering company from Atherton, Greater Manchester, has emerged as the ultimate winner in the prestigious PFM Awards 2023, trumping industry giants at the heart of London's FM Sector with Operations Manager Gary Zetter also reaching the final, representing ASH for the 'Special Recognition Award.

The PFM Awards, known as the pinnacle of recognition in the UK's Facilities Management sector, witnessed ASH Integrated Services Ltd not only securing the coveted 'Partners in SME Organisation Award' alongside esteemed client Lovett Care Homes but also being crowned as the 'Overall Award Winners.' This remarkable feat eclipsed top FTSE 250 contenders, and other leading industry companies.

The 30th Anniversary of the PFM Awards, hosted by the charismatic Claudia Winkleman, marked a historic moment as this pioneering team became the first SME to be declared the overall winner.. With just over 50 employees, the business stood out as the smallest company in the finals, representing the only finalist from outside of London.

"Our journey into these awards was driven by the ambition to elevate our business profile and assess our standing in the industry. We sought to compete against well-established, often larger, London-based companies and understand where we stand in our sector," commented Antony Grace, Company Director at ASH Integrated Services Ltd.

This monumental achievement was followed by the GMCC Excellence Awards 2023 held in Manchester on Friday 3rd November, where the company clinched the 'SME Business of the Year' title, triumphing over more than 40 competing companies in the category - read more about the awards here

Antony added, "This recognition is a testament to the dedication and hard work of our entire team. Every individual at ASH Integrated Services played a crucial role in securing this triple victory, and we firmly believe that we win as a team."

The triple win not only solidifies the organisations position as a rising star in the FM sector but also highlights Manchester's prowess in bringing home the treble. As the company continues to build its name and reputation on a national scale, ASH Integrated Services remains committed to delivering excellence and innovation in the engineering and facilities management landscape.
