Established in the UAE since 1980, Dubai-based Farnek Services LLC/Farnek Middle East LLC is an international full service property management company.
With a skilled workforce of more than 5,500 employees, Farnek has now added offices in the Northern Emirates, to its existing offices in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, to deliver professional FM services for over 2,500 properties to high quality, world-renowned organisations such as Dubai Airport, Emirates Airlines, Abu Dhabi Airport, Etihad Airways, Dubai Mall and Dubai’s latest high profile mixed-use community, City Walk.
In 2010, following a successful tender bid, Farnek received the ultimate trade reference – the maintenance contract for the tallest building in the world, Burj Khalifa. This paved the way for Farnek to confirm its position as the leading FM company in the UAE, which was capped with Farnek being awarded the 2015 Facilities Management Middle East ‘Overall FM Company of the Year’ award.
Being an innovative and technology-led company, Farnek was one of the first FM companies to offer an online maintenance platform and in conjunction with Hitches & Glitches, (part of the Farnek group since 2014) it has also signed an agreement with Gadgitech, a UAE distributor of smart home products. Besides a potential retail collaboration, Farnek aims to become a market leader in the fledgling smart home installation and maintenance sector.
Farnek is also a leader in sustainability and has exclusivity agreements with international organisations such as Green Globe and my climate. In 2007 Farnek was presented with the prestigious Emirates Energy award for producing the Middle East’s first hotel energy consumption benchmark survey and shortly afterwards launched the Middle East’s first carbon neutral transport. Farnek has also been accredited by the Dubai Regulatory Supervisory Bureau as an approved energy auditor.
In recognition of its sustainability efforts, Farnek has been the proud recipient of the renowned Facilities Management Middle East Awards ‘Green FM Company of the Year’ in 2012, 2014 and once again in 2015. Farnek has also been recognised for its tireless efforts in CSR and as such was rewarded with ‘CSR Initiative of the Year’ at the 2015 awards ceremony.
