FWA West was established in 1938 and operated as a specialist in the building maintenance and refurbishment contractor within the Housing Sector.  The two shareholders recognized the huge potential within the company and knew they had developed the business as far as they could and realized it was time for an acquirer to take the Company to the next level of its development.   

They retained BCMS to market their business, generate interested parties by pitching the business opportunities, drive the sales process and negotiations to secure a buyer from the hundreds of companies that were initially approached.  Through a rigorous qualifying process, a handful of firms were invited to the meeting stage, further processing of these firms led to negotiations with a smaller group of companies and FWA West was sold to Apollo London .

Apollo London is a subsidiary of the Apollo Group which was established in 1976 and has over 30 years experience working successfully within the Public Sector, namely housing, education and public buildings.

BCMS Corporate is an independent corporate advisory firm with over 20 years experience selling privately owned small and medium-sized businesses. BCMS Corporate currently employes over 200 professionals with offices in North America, Western & Eastern Europe, and Asia.
