FMA, CSSA and Asset Skills Confirm Merger

Asset Skills, CSSA and the FMA have confirmed merger plans following the board meetings of all three organisations.

The merger aims to provide effective trade body representation with a membership structure that encompasses corporate bodies, SMEs and service users.

All three organisations had previously operated independently in similar / complimentary roles: Asset Skills is the employer-led skills body for facilities management, housing, property, planning, cleaning and parking. The Facilities Management Association (the FMA) is the UK’s leading representative trade body for employers in the FM sector engaged in delivering non-core services to a broad range of public and private organisations. The CSSA is a membership association for the cleaning and support services sector. It is the customers' guide to quality and reliability in the UK cleaning and support services market.

Sarah Bentley, Chief Executive at Asset Skills, commented: “We are thrilled to announce that the merger will happen following formal agreement from the boards. This is the beginning of a progressive and innovative organisation that will provide bespoke services and opportunities for each sector. We have some great plans developing and there will be more information regarding benefits announced shortly.”

The merger of the organisations will be finalised in November following approval of a special resolution by the members.
