Supporting ERA Home Security

Contract Awards

The UK’s only pay-as-you-go facilities management provider SSiFM is supporting ERA Home Security with a move into a brand-new state of the art building.


ERA’s new two storey office block, which also includes a large warehouse and purpose-built distribution centre, is supported by the SSiFM Facilities Management who have an impressive 20 years in total facilities management solutions.



Providing trusted window and door security products as well as all the latest in smart-home solutions, ERA has over 179 years’ experience manufacturing, designing and innovating security products for Britain’s homes. Due to company expansion, ERA are moving into the new purpose built construction and have enlisted the services of local renowned facilities management company SSiFM to prepare the new building ahead of their move at the end of this month, as well as flexible on-going pay-as-you-go support.



Chris Balmforth MC, MBIFM, Managing Director of SSiFM based in Hednesford, Staffordshire explains, ‘What makes SSiFM different to other FM companies is our desire to improve the Facilities Management Industry by leading best practices through transparency and shared resource. People these days are reluctant to sign into long term facilities management contracts what with the uncertainty of Brexit and the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union.’ He adds, ‘Our unique pay-as—you-go services mean that companies such as ERA can come to us as and when they require quality vetted, FM professionals without the hassle and commitment of being tied into lengthy contracts. Our priority is to assist FM professionals by providing them with a wide variety of flexible cost-effective support services to help them successfully manage their businesses.’



Nicky Purba, HR Director at ERA, explains, ‘We are working with SSiFM to establish a professional, efficient and timely FM service. The team have quickly understood our values as a business and developed a service schedule that can flex with our needs as we settle into our new site. She adds, ‘I am delighted with the responsive and professional service received to date and am looking forward to continuing to work with the team over the next 12 months.’



SSiFM provides an innovative, easy to use Facilities Management portal and centralised database of FM professionals who can be called upon at any time of day or night. Besides being specialists in cleaning and hard services, the company prides themselves on simplifying processes, systems and services where they can to deliver a professional, clear and consistent approach to facilities management. Ahead of ERA’s move into their new two storey office block, large warehouse and distribution centre, SSiFM have been integral to getting the space ready, assisting with such things as cleaning, pest control, waste, handyman services, plumbing.



SSiFM have been supporting ERA with their transition into their new offices, warehouse and distributing centre by providing quality FM services.
