PTSG’s incredible journey

 
This month, PTSG’s Chief Executive, Paul Teasdale, was interviewed by Brian Shillibeer, Chief Correspondent of ThisWeekinFM.

In an open and frank exchange, the two talked about PTSG’s journey over the past 12 years and alluded to the factors that are behind the company’s success. One factor that came through loud and clear was passion – passion for the FM sector and the desire to offer something genuinely new.

PTSG has experienced rapid growth and achieved a significant share of the markets in which it operates in a relatively short time. Compliance is one of the main areas of business for the Group. Paul talked about PTSG’s good relationship with the larger FM companies and how they complement each other, doing things the other can’t or doesn’t want to do.

As for acquisitions, Paul was clear that PTSG doesn’t buy businesses to solve problems. The Group’s strategic acquisitions policy is about enhancing its business, taking the company into new niche markets and expanding its geographical coverage. PTSG can also help certain companies with their own growth curve.

Talking about what motivates him, Paul said, “PTSG has never been about money, it’s about passion for the FM sector. Building something that’s never existed before – that’s sustainable, offers great services, employs great people and develops their careers.”
