GSH acquires TeamQ in the United Kingdom

Leading global facilities management company GSH Group has acquired Team Q, a UK based facilities maintenance provider delivering technical maintenance solutions.


Privately owned, GSH Group delivers facilities management services across a diverse portfolio of industrial, commercial, government and private real estate. The acquisition of Team Q supports the group’s ambitions to achieve significant growth and enhance service delivery in the UK.

Now part of the GSH Group, Team Q will continue to operate autonomously with the existing leadership team delivering intelligent maintenance solutions including scheduled maintenance, 24/7 reactive support, project services, asset management and compliance services to businesses throughout the UK. Team Q now has access to significant GSH Group resource and support functions including cutting-edge sustainability and energy management services to expand the breadth of FM services at the highest service levels.

GSH Group has been delivering customised FM services for 127 years. Services include integrated facilities management, technical operations, sustainability, and energy consulting. The company employs over 4,500 staff and is currently headquartered out of New Jersey with offices throughout North America, Asia and Europe. GSH maintains a dedicated engineering division which spearheads ground-breaking projects in energy management and waste-to-biofuel initiatives.

CEO of the GSH Group, Mark Thomas said: “The GSH Group was founded in the UK, so we are proud to be going back to our roots. We have enjoyed significant growth in the USA and India, and the integration of Team Q will cement a stronger platform for us in the UK and offer a springboard for European expansion. We’re very much looking forward to working closely with the talented workforce at Team Q.”

Team Q will be embraced in GSH’s corporate goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2023, which is far ahead of any other FM provider.  Over the years, GSH has been recognised nationally and internationally for their efforts in bringing sustainable solutions to the as-built environment.  

Guy Busfield, managing director, Team Q added: “We are excited to become part of the GSH Group. This acquisition will allow Team Q to develop a greater strength in the energy market. With GSH’s long standing history, corporate resources including leading FM technologies, and global footprint, we’ll be able to offer our customer base a greater level of expertise.”
