Atalian Global Services – the UFS partner in France and Central & Eastern Europe – has been awarded by Air France to provide Facility Management in its headquarter in Roissy. This 4-years-length contract started in September 2014, after 3 months of pre-operation.

How to best describe Best Practices? They are mainly experiences ... One’s own knowledge and skills that we use every day during our activities, sometimes completely automatically and unconsciously. Knowledge collected from years of practice and verified through practice. During ATALIAN’s long-term operation in the market for cleaning paint shops we’ve gained lots of experience. Each of our contract managers has something unique about "their" paint shop and they share this with the others. The exchange of information is absolutely necessary for smooth operations.
We offer a comprehensive service for hypermarkets and department stores, which is linked to complete building administration and maintenance. We allow you to focus on your main line of business.
ATALIAN continually improves and upgrades the processes for better communication with the customer. Based on an internal study we decided to introduce new processes, which will allow for faster and more efficient solutions.

ATALIAN CZ continues in its scheduled growth strategy. On 24 March it bought further shares from the original founders and owners of ATALIAN KAF Facility s.r.o.. Currently ATALIAN CZ holds 92.5 %, thus confirming its objective to gradually purchase 100 % and subsequently merge with this company.
