The RFM Group was founded in 1961 by Robert Frew, a plastering contractor in Scotland. The company grew quickly, and by 1974 it was the second-largest plastering contractor in Scotland. RFM’s success was due to its forward-thinking vision, which put the customer at the centre of everything it did and used leading technology to drive performance and efficiencies.
In 2003, RFM was born, moving into the facilities management (FM) sector. The company saw the potential for FM to help businesses improve their bottom line, and it quickly became a leader in the market. RFM’s FM services were based on its unique 4-stage connected services approach, which covers Consult, Build, Manage, and Maintain. This approach ensures that clients’ needs are met at every stage of the property lifecycle.
In the next two decades, RFM continued to grow and expand its services. The company acquired a number of other businesses, including Centric Office Solutions Ltd, a leading provider of office furniture and fit-out services. This acquisition gave RFM a full-lifecycle property offering, from design and construction to furniture and fit-out to maintenance and management.
Today, the RFM Group is a leading provider of FM and property services in the UK. The company employs over 1,000 people and has a turnover of over £100 million. RFM’s clients include some of the UK’s largest businesses, such as the BBC, Rolls-Royce, and the Ministry of Defence.
The RFM Group is committed to delivering exceptional customer experiences. The company’s 4-stage connected services approach ensures that clients’ needs are met at every stage of the property lifecycle. RFM also invests heavily in technology, which helps the company to deliver its services more efficiently and effectively.
