ABM expands partnership with Chicago O’Hare
ABM has signed a new five-year contract worth $25 million a year to provide “comprehensive custodial, window cleaning and related hygiene and disposal services” for the airside facilities at Chicago O’Hare’s Terminals 1, 2 and 3.
The contract represents a significant expansion of ABM’s current work at O’Hare. The company notes that it “has been a proud partner on the Terminal 5 renovation project since March 2019”, along with providing other airport and airline services.
“We are thrilled to expand our relationship with O’Hare and work alongside Chicago’s Department of Aviation to bring our industry-leading cleaning, safety and efficiency protocols across one of the world’s finest and busiest airports,” said Sean Bromfield, president of Aviation at ABM.
“Through our existing partnership on Terminal 5, we are well-acquainted with O’Hare’s standards of care for airlines and travellers, who expect and deserve a clean and healthy experience.
“We have proven our ability to meet and exceed O’Hare’s exacting standards and look forward to showing the rest of this iconic airport how we take care of the people, spaces and places that matter most.”
At O’Hare alone, ABM will partner with seven Chicago-based, minority and women-owned subcontractors. Further, through its Supplier Diversity Program, the company has increased its commitments to diverse suppliers by 164% during the past four years.
“At ABM, we know that a diverse workforce is essential to our success,” said Paul Shira, ABM’s vice president of operations. “It is deeply important that our team reflects the diversity and pride of Chicagoans and Chicago-area residents. At our facilities across the nation, we remain committed to equal opportunity and to fostering inclusive environments where everyone feels welcomed, valued and heard.”
ABM is also a key service provider at Midway International Airport, where the company partners with a consortium to handle all janitorial and engineering functions throughout the property.
