Facilities maintenance specialist establishes Scotland HQ to meet demand for green technologies

COMMERCIAL Maintenance Services (CMS) UK has appointed Adam Bartle to the new role of head of renewables as the company looks to grow its energy saving and carbon reduction services in Scotland.

He has been tasked with creating a strategy that enables the business to meet rising demand for renewable energy technology.

CMS has established an office in Paisley to support its team operating across Scotland. Earlier this year the business launched its electric vehicle (EV) charging installation service. The company is involved in the installation, maintenance, and repair of ‘business-critical’ systems across multiple sectors.

Adam, who is also managing CMS’ electrical team, said, “The major hotel chains and healthcare sector are currently leading the demand for EV charging stations. There is growing awareness from both commercial and public sector organisations of the need to improve their sustainability as Scotland continues its transition towards a net zero future.

“They also recognise that being EV friendly is increasingly important to both employees and customers as more switch to hybrid or pure electric vehicles.”

Nic Smith CMS operations director, added, “Under new treasury rules, announced at COP26 in Glasgow, most large firms will have to demonstrate how they intend to meet climate change targets. There are many advantages to business of adopting renewables and energy saving solutions, and we are determined to be at the forefront of deploying this technology for our clients.”

CMS is also developing other capabilities within the renewables sector, including solar panels and the installation of biomass boilers and air and water-source heat pumps.

Adam previously worked for CMS as a regional technical manager, in between spells with CBRE Global Workspace Solutions, progressing from engineer to account manager.
