Absolute! Building Maintenance had its start as Markey-Powers & Associates on March 15, 1975 in grocery store floor care. As with many startups, the owners cleaned at night and managed their business during the day. In mid-1977, Saginaw became home and services were expanded to include cleaning offices, schools and industrial facilities.
In 1987, recognizing the future of the industry was embarking on new changes and that these changes would encompass more than cleaning functions, a new company, A!BM, was established to meet the needs of our clients into the next millennium.
The 1990’s witnessed the steady growth and development of the business, including the formation of A!BM’s industry peer review group; Key company personnel earning the Registered Building Service Manager designation through the Building Service Contractors Association International, a worldwide trade association in the industry.
As 2010 came upon the horizon, A!BM had become a recognized leader in the facility maintenance field.
