Brookfield Global Integrated Solutions (Brookfield GIS), a global real estate facility management service provider, recently announced its acquisition of McKinstry FMS, a critical environments and data center facility management service provider active across the United States.
With this acquisition, Brookfield GIS is carrying on its strategy to create a technically-focused real estate and facility management service provider that spans the globe. As part of the transaction, McKinstry, parent company of McKinstry FMS, will take a minority stake in Brookfield GIS’ American operations and use its design and build technical expertise to become a value-added partner to Brookfield GIS.
McKinstry FMS has been operating as a critical environment facility management service provider in the U.S. since the early 1990s. With best-in-class processes and procedures and 350 critical facility engineers, technicians, planners and program managers, the firm specializes in managing critical environments for some of the largest cloud and enterprise data centers in North America.
“By combining McKinstry FMS’s capabilities in critical environment facilities management with Brookfield GIS’s integrated real estate and facility management service expertise, we have created one of the largest data center and critical environment facility management companies in North America, managing highly critical real estate operations for some of the world’s leading technology companies, financial institutions and government agencies,” said Gord Hicks, Brookfield GIS Americas president and CEO, in a press release.
The transaction is expected to close in August, conditional on customary closing conditions.
