Morrison Facilities Services plc is a United Kingdom-based Public Limited Company that specialises in providing facilities services to private businesses and central and local government bodies. The core area of the business is the repairs and maintenance of social housing. Morrison is responsible for the maintenance of more than 400,000 properties in the UK. It is a subsidiary of Anglian Water Group.
Morrison was originally founded by the Morrison family in 1948 in Tain, Scotland, as Morrison Construction. In the 1980s, 80% of the company was sold to Charter Consolidated, with the Morrison family retaining 20% of the ownership. During 1989, the Morrison family repurchased the 80% of the business sold to Charter Consolidated earlier that decade, and also acquired the businesses of Biggs Wall and Shand Construction. These businesses merged to form a single Morrison Construction. .
In 1995, Morrison Construction listed on the London Stock Exchange as Morrison Construction Plc. Morrison Construction was purchased by AWG Plc in 2000 and therefore Morrison Construction Plc became de-listed.
The construction division of the business was sold to Galliford Try in March 2006, and as a result the company split into two divisions, Morrison Facilities Services and Morrison Utilities Services.
Morrison FS has several contracts and subsidiaries nationwide, split into five regions: London & South; Midlands; East; North West; and Scotland & North. Below is a list of current operations across the UK.
