Luke Kitchen managing director, said: “Today the business is almost four times the size it was in 2013 and we’ve broadened our services to include everything that’s needed to maintain and repair commercial buildings.

“The investment received from FW Capital has provided us with a secure platform to grow our business with confidence.

“We’ve also expanded our workforce and recently taken on an engineer and two more admin roles.”

Lindsey McMenamin, portfolio manager at FW Capital, added: “Robinsons Facilities Services is a long-standing, prominent and established position in the Yorkshire market and has a strong reputation for providing quality customer service and reliable solutions.
