In recognition of its continuous and exemplary commitment to Global Best Practice in Nigeria’s facilities management (FM) industry, a Facility manager, Alpha Mead Facilities & Management Services Ltd (AMFacilities), has been recognized as an “An Outstanding Facilities Engineering Company” by the Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE).
The award, which according to the NSE President, Ademola Olorunfemi, is in recognition of the company’s contribution to the engineering profession in the country, through its strides in the facilities management sector.
The award, presented to Alpha Mead’s Managing Director/CEO, Engr. Femi Akintunde at the just concluded NSE Conference, Sunshine 2015, in Akure, Ondo State, Olorunfemi declared that Alpha Mead is an outstanding facilities management company, being currently operating in six countries in Africa, with several engineers in its employment.

Our local and international suppliers and contractors, who are partnering and supporting us with quality materials and skills required to deliver superior service to our customers. And of course, our clients who believe and count on us to deliver value to their assets, and who have continued to entrust us with the facilities where they live, work and play”.
